jQuery Lifestream – A simple way to track your online activity in one spot

With the addition of Google +, we are connected again to another social network. With more people becoming members of multiple networks, blogs, twitters, or what-have-you it is getting increasingly difficult to keep track of your online activity. Lifestream offers a simple jQuery plugin to be able to pull from almost any network feed into one spot. Pull your tweets, likes, check-ins, and even your Github all into one simplified feed. Check out jQuery lifestream from Christian Vuerings.

Installation and Useage:
A really simple to use plugin. You just have to add a couple scripts to your jQuery dependancy and some account information for each network you want to stream.

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="https://raw.github.com/christianv/jquery-lifestream/master/jquery.lifestream-compiled.js"></script>
        service: "github",
        user: "doejo"
        service: "twitter",
        user: "doejo"

Lifestream even supports templates to easily customize each network stream.

{  service: 'github',
  user: 'doejo',
  template: {
    githubpost: 'Posted: <a href="${url}">${title}</a>'

Christian has created a nice demo page to test your social networks usernames.
