RSS And ATOM Parser Application
This project allows you to display RSS/ATOM feeds on your Web site. A simple way to read and write information on the web, allowing you to easily keep track of more sites in less time, and to seamlessly share your words and ideas by publishing to the web.
RSS is a family of Web feed formats used to publish frequently updated worksâ€such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and videoâ€in a standardized format. An RSS document (which is called a "feed", "web feed", or "channel") includes full or summarized text, plus metadata such as publishing dates and authorship. Web feeds benefit publishers by letting them syndicate content automatically. They benefit readers who want to subscribe to timely updates from favored websites or to aggregate feeds from many sites into one place. RSS feeds can be read using software called an "RSS reader", "feed reader", or "aggregator", which can be web-based or desktop-based.
A standardized XML file format allows the information to be published once and viewed by many different programs. The user subscribes to a feed by entering the feed's URI (often referred to informally as a "URL) into the reader or by clicking an RSS icon in a browser that initiates the subscription process. The RSS reader checks the user's subscribed feeds regularly for new work, downloads any updates that it finds, and provides a user interface to monitor and read the feeds.
This RSS feed Software Application is used in our websites i.e., http://www.whereareyou.in and http://www.bookacab.co.in for displaying news.
Number of modules: 2
Module 1: User Operations
In this module, User can get registered by providing all his details i.e. username, contact number, email id, etc. Here a user account is created with his login ID and password, using which the user can login into his account for managing his account, changing his feeds and updating his profile. And users can view his feeds and add new feeds or delete his existing feed and also get the feed code from Admin. Once he gets his required feed code then he can use this feed code in his own web pages. Users should parse that XML format and display in his website.
Module 2: Admin Operations
In this module, Admin can add or update the news feed time to time. He can save these news feeds in either RSS format or ATOM format which will be stored as XML files. And he can accept or reject user accounts. He can provide the feed code for particular users, which are, depends on the users selection.
RSS ("Really Simple Syndication") is a web content syndication format. RSS is becoming the standard format for syndicating news content over the web. RSS formats are specified using XML, a generic specification for the creation of data formats. So in this module we need to parse that XML content do display in our web pages
Atom is a simple way to read and write information on the web, allowing you to easily keep track of more sites in less time, and to seamlessly share your words and ideas by publishing to the web. In this module we make our website able to read and write information which is in atom format.
