Default Formatter

The default formatter, represented by the DefaultFormatter class, should be sufficient for most use cases. Its constructor accepts two parameters. The first is a string containing placeholders for various data from feed items. Below is a list of the supported placeholders:

  • %authorname%
  • %authoremail%
  • %authoruri%
  • %content%
  • %datecreated%
  • %datemodified%
  • %description%
  • %id%
  • %link%
  • %links%
  • %permalink%
  • %title%
  • %commentcount%
  • %commentlink%
  • %commentfeedlink%

The second parameter is an optional string containing a date format to use when formatting the value of the %datecreated% and %datemodified% placeholders. It defaults to the ISO-8601 format.

Custom Formatters

In cases where DefaultFormatter does not meet your needs, you can create your own formatter. This is merely a class that implements FormatterInterface.
