Week 4

This week we will look at styling a Yahoo Pipes badge, the easiest way to get content from a pipe and onto your page. However, badges don’t give you a lot of control – we’ll look at the second, more complex way to get data from a pipe next week.

We’re going to use a number of different pipes and put them on a page. For this example, I’m going to use:

But you can use any pipes you want.

What you will need for this exercise

  • Working Pipes (use mine, linked above if you are still completing your own)
  • Firefox
  • Firebug is a plugin for Firefox that allows you to inspect and edit the HTML and CSS of any webpage.  You can install it from https://getfirebug.com/downloads/
  • A text editor for creating HTML and CSS files, such as Komodo Edit.

You can find the HTML and CSS for a simple example here.
