yahoo pipes

basically, will the ability to update, insert and delete be accessible within yahoo pipes for meme. at the moment yahoo pipes does not handle https. But, it would be cool if the pipes team in junction with the meme team develop a module that allowed for meme manipulation insertion and deletion of content.

  • Hi Monsignor,

    That's a good question, I will talk with the Pipes/YQL team and figure this out. But, anyway, don't count on this in the short term. Thanks for your interest on Meme, Let us know if we can help with any other questions you have.

    I actually have another question,
    I notice the timestamp for meme's. I was able to turn my meme into a feed using yql and pipes but i have one problem, the timestamp. Is the timestamp value correct that YQL returns? The YQL statement in question is

    http://query.yahooapis.com/v1/yql?q=SELECT...wner_guid%3D%22

    The timestamp for my latest element is
    1253671842410

    that returns
    Thu, 11 Apr 41697 18:26:50 GMT

    that can not be right.

    As for pipes and Meme. I understand. I know yahoo must have a plan, at least, I hope yahoo does.

    What about for an open apps?
    If I have a php page hosted somewhere, when the canvas page is opened on the yahoo frontpage or my yahoo, if I have code which uses YQL's meme tables, a user should have no problem using any of them, right?

    It would be great if Meme developers could provide examples of the code needed in the canvas to successfully use the different Meme tables in YQL.

    We use timestamps as the number of milliseconds since epoch. You probably want unix time, which is defined as the number of seconds since epoch. To get the later, simply divide the former by 1000. In pipes, one possible solution woulbe be something like this:

    Yes that should go as usual as any other YQL table. Maybe if you could narrow what kind of examples you are expecting we could provide a better answer.

    The timestamp works well enough, though it still gives the incorrect time for earlier posts but, it is fine.

    I will narrow it down, to one function.
    I would like to be able to input entries(text/photo/video/ audio) to my meme from my yahoo. So, when I go to my yahoo, i can input something to my meme from there. I want to use an open app using an web app hosting service. Now, I can't use the php sdk using an web app hosting service. At least, not to my knowledge. So, I am thinking javascript. Can you help ?

    Did you mean using javascript to print a date from the timestamp?

    I believe it is as simple as
    CODE
    new Date(timestamp);
    where timestamp is the value returned by YQL.

    No bruno, each meme object has its own temporal value which must be transformed into the unix timestamp. but, i got it to work well enough regardless of that
