Badges for Yahoo! Pipes

image Pipes is unique in making the world of feeds accessible and "mashable" in a friendly browser-based development environment.

But it's always felt like there was a missing piece too. Pipes is easy enough for novice (or even non-) programmers to use, but what it ultimately produces is a data feed intended to be consumed by a program.

Pipes Badges change all that. If you can add a one-line script tag to a web page, you can visually display the output of a pipe on you own web site. Watch this video to learn more about this.

You'll notice that these badges do more that render an RSS feed as a list. If the feed contains photo data, you can get a slide show. And if the feed contains geocoded data, you can get a map badge.
