Ed Finkler has a new post today showing how he's created a tumbleblog using the Gimmie Bar API and backend as a source for the posts. For the curious, the code for his simple blog can be found here.

One of the coolest things about working on Gimme Bar has been the opportunity to build a platform. While most folks interact with our service via the web site, the site is just one application built on top of the Gimme Bar content collection and curation system. Our web site interacts with the system via our HTTP API, which is open to everyone, not just our internal team. That means that anyone can build applications on top of our platform to suit their own needs or interests.

This simple blog (demo here grabs items from his Gimmie Bar feed and posts them. He includes complete installation instructions and a brief overview of how the parts work together.
