This was written some time ago, but might still be interesting to release: node-apk-parser. If you ever tried to extract data from an Android APK file (such as the application name), you’ll have noticed that Google decided to use a very complex binary XML encoding.

While deploying a new version of my website, I somehow must have broken one of the fundamentals of the Internet (or in this case: RSS). This caused a flood of tweets, Facebook posts, entries in Google Reader and occurrences on planets (e.g. Planet GNOME). Apologies for that! On the bright side, I’m planning to get… Read more »
