Is there a proposed/documented IPLD structure for “feeds” (similar to RSS)?
I imagined a structure might look like this, but don’t want to invent a new structure if one exists!
<Feed Root> - Feed metadata (name, description author, etc.) - Number of items in feed - IPLD link to most recent item <Feed Item> - Item metadata (title, description, time stamp, etc) - IPLD link to feed item contents (eg. Markdown post; mp3 file; static webpage directory) - IPLD link to previous most recent item (absent for first)
(For folks familiar with RSS/Atom this is intentionally very similar)
- The nested/linked-list style of IPLD references for the feed items minimises the amount of new IPFS blocks when a new item is added to the feed (just the new item, and an update to the feed root)
- Using a separate IPLD link for the contents means a whole directory can be used (think: RSS post and images all directly referenced)
- This structure would be immediately convertible to RSS for podcasts, blog feeds and similar.
Does such a spec exist already? Would anyone be interested in using such a thing for IPFS-first blogs/etc?
