What is BEANS?
BEANS is a framework for building community web aggregators. It grew out of the GUFF project to provide a community site for the students and alumni of the University of Glasgow.

Technical details
BEANS is coded entirely in PHP, with a MySQL database forming the backend. MagpieRSS is used to retrieve and parse the aggregated feeds. FeedCreator is used to generate the RSS 2.0 and Atom feeds.
