Featured lists are another thing I’d like to use more of. The ability to pull the latest books and other data from the server would be nice. While I figured out how to pull the information, the XML server appears to ignore my limiting and returns the whole list no matter what. This can be problematic if you have a large featured list. The way to get a featured list from the xmlopac is just take the list number and add a zero in front. Here’s an example. He’s the same example in a slightly nicer display (parsed). These links may break if the lists are removed. I figured out the list number by going to /ftlists in the opac, clicking on a list and then taking the numbers directly after the letters bib.
I’m hoping to make this a bit more useful with the item data but we’ll see if I can figure out how to limit/paginate it first.
