- Application plugins can be installed to extend the functionality of Awasu itself.
- Using channel hooks, you can tap into the flow of information as it moves around within Awasu to perform actions such as send out emails or update databases.
- Channel folders and filters provide a sophisticated way of managing your channel subscriptions.
Much more powerful than the traditional method of using folders and sub-folders, filters let you precisely control which channels are displayed at any given time.
- Reports can be generated to export content out of Awasu.
These are remarkably flexible and can used to perform tasks such as:
* provide a single-page summary of your channel content.
* export your subscription list to any format whatsoever e.g. OPML, OCS, HTML, XML, etc..
* automatically keep your blogroll up-to-date.
* provide a starting point for programs such as Plucker to download content to your PC or PDA for later reading offline.
* create meta-channels.
- Allows feeds to be modified using XSLT.
- Allows web services, or any other data source that publishes information using XML, to be queried using SOAP.
