Laravel 5 Package to extract atom and rss feeds from any website in a very good readable format


PHP 5.4+ or HHVM 3.3+, and Composer are required.

To get the latest version of Laravel Feeder, simply add the following line to the require block of your composer.json file.

"unicodeveloper/laravel-feeder": "1.1.*"

You'll then need to run composer install or composer update to download it and have the autoloader updated.

Once Laravel Feeder is installed, you need to register the service provider. Open up config/app.php and add the following to the providers key.

  • Unicodeveloper\LaravelFeeder\LaravelFeederServiceProvider::class

You can also use a Facade

'aliases' => [
    'Feeder' => Unicodeveloper\LaravelFeeder\Facades\LaravelFeederFacade::class,


To get started, you'll need to publish all vendor assets:

$ php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Unicodeveloper\LaravelFeeder\LaravelFeederServiceProvider"


Download RSS feed from URL:

  $rss = Feeder::loadRss($url);

The returned properties are SimpleXMLElement objects. Extracting the information from the channel is easy:

  echo 'Title: ', $rss->title;
  echo 'Description: ', $rss->description;
  echo 'Link: ', $rss->link;

  foreach ($rss->item as $item) {
    echo 'Title: ', $item->title;
    echo 'Link: ', $item->link;
    echo 'Timestamp: ', $item->timestamp;
    echo 'Description ', $item->description;
    echo 'HTML encoded content: ', $item->{'content:encoded'};

Download Atom feed from URL:

  $atom = Feeder::loadAtom($url);
