Projects / rsstool


rsstool is a tool to read, parse, merge, and write RSS (and Atom) feeds. It has some other functions built-in like text, HTML, or property file output, or templates with custom tags to insert RSS feeds into pages that could be uploaded to a server that supports only static HTML.

    Release Notes: A small bug was fixed, so durations of eventual videos are actually parsed now.

    •  12 Mar 2010 03:31

      Release Notes: This release adds a new field to the database structure, rsstool_media_duration (if rsstool finds durations for some kind of media in the feed, it will parse them into rsstool_media_duration, in seconds), --enc=ENCODING, which overrides the encoding specified in the RSS header (useful for some broken RSS feeds), --filter=LOGIC, sometimes referred to as implied Boolean LOGIC (use this to remove items from the RSS feed before output), --nosort, to not sort items by date (on by default), --parse=FILE|URL to generate an RSS feed from a random HTML document, some code cleanups and fixes, support for Atom 1.0 feeds (they worked before, but now it says so in the usage, too), and xmlget as a download on the Web site (accesses XML files using the XPath syntax). It deprecates the --joomla and --dragonfly options (replaced with scripts in contrib/) and --sqlold (and support for the other old database structures). It removes the --curl option (it is always the default now, if libcurl is available) and the --wget option (you may want to rely on the curl support or use wget from a script instead).

        Release Notes: This release adds --php to produce output as PHP code (Array ()).

        •  24 Sep 2007 12:29

          Release Notes: A small typographical error and a wrong time format were fixed. The --curl option was added for using libcurl for downloading. The --joomla option was added to output as an ANSI SQL script for importing into Joomla! CMS. The --dragonfly option was added to output as an ANSI SQL script for importing into Dragonfly CMS. Some minor bugs were fixed and some code cleanups were made.
