I'd like to fetch some feeds with YQL and then have the result sorted on pubDate in a descending order. I know how to sort in an ascending order, but I guess I don't quite understand the documentation...
Ah! descending="true". Cool. Thanks a lot for that!
You're right, though, it might not do what I want. How might I get, what I want? I suppose, there should be a way to transform the date to ISO format and UTC time zone (ie. something like "2009-04-08 21:04:57" for right now). That way, with ISO format, a lexical sort would work as well.
Yes, there is a usage limit, but I've never seen that limit defined. When the limit is hit Pipes returns a 999 error. For a little more detail please see http://discuss.pipes.yahoo.com/Message_Boa...32&mid=6337 Some of the Pipes developers have also worked on YQL. so maybe they will provide more detail.
Actually, it seems that I can get exactly what I want with a pipe. I just need to pass on a date and Yahoo! Pipes is clever enough to figure out the date from the string given (something like "Thu, 09 Apr 2009 21:32:54 +0200") and then I can have the pipe filter out all the too-old entries.
