By default there are two parsers included for these external sources. The RSS parser works out of the box and supports RSS 1.0, RSS 2.0 and ATOM feeds. The NewsML parser is based on the SDA implementation of NewsML but needs a little configuration, since most NewsML feeds are pushed via FTP to the server. The parser already includes basic functionality to read xml files from a directory. Extra parser can be installed by creating a file in the Parsers directory of this plugin. The abstract parser should be extended, since it already contains all valid methods and returns default valid values. One should just extend the needed methods and it's done. It's also possible to store additional information through the getAttribute() methods. See source code for more clarification.


Multiple feeds can be added, using the same or different parsers. Per feed it's possible to set publication and section where the external content should be published, the parser can also specific a section per entry. Feeds can be updated manually through the backend interface or through console commands, which can also be used in a cron. Autmatic publishing of feeds is also possible.


All entries will be listed and can manually be published or prepared. By preparing an entry an article will be created, which could be edited by the user. Remember though that on updates of the feed the article content could be overwritten. Entries will be automatically updated with the correct content, uniqueness is determined by the newsItemId. Through the getInstruction method in the parser one can also specify to delete an entry.
