Installation

To enable this product in a buildout-based installation:

  1. Edit your buildout.cfg and add collective.syndication to the list of eggs to install:

    [buildout]
    ...
    eggs =

After updating the configuration you need to run ''bin/buildout'', which will take care of updating your system.

Feeds

Atom

Atom is an XML-based document format that describes lists of related information known as "feeds". Feeds are composed of a number of items, known as "entries", each with an extensible set of attached metadata. For example, each entry has a title.

The primary use case that Atom addresses is the syndication of Web content such as weblogs and news headlines to Web sites as well as directly to user agents.

Atom feeds have multiple advantages over RSS feeds.

iTunes

TBD.

NewsML 1

NewsML 1 is an XML standard designed to provide a media-independent, structural framework for multi-media news.

In this package, we implement part of the standard, to be usable by MSN. There's no online reference on how MSN expects data, just a PDF included in the docs folder of this package.

RSS 1.0 (RDF Site Summary)

RDF Site Summary is a lightweight multipurpose extensible metadata description and syndication format. RSS is an XML application, conforms to the W3C's RDF Specification and is extensible via XML-namespace and/or RDF based modularization.

RSS 2.0

TBD.
