A feed aggregator content type for Plone.

Project description

Life, the Universe, and Everything

This package defines a Feed Aggregator content type that shows all entries on a list of feeds. External content is not indexed in any way.

TODO:

  • [ ] deal with shorter timeouts
  • [ ] honor privacy settings on byline
  • [ ] lead image support

Don’t Panic

Installation

To enable this package in a buildout-based installation:

  1. Edit your buildout.cfg and add add the following to it:

    [buildout]
    ...
    eggs =
        collective.feedaggregator
    

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

Go to the ‘Site Setup’ page in a Plone site and click on the ‘Add-ons’ link.

Check the box next to collective.feedaggregator and click the ‘Activate’ button.

How does it work

Every Feed Aggregator includes a list of feeds to be processed. The entries in the feeds are parsed in parallel using multiprocessing. Results are cached for 15 minutes on an instance base. If a Feed Aggregator is modified in any way, caching is invalidated.

Not entirely unlike

Products.feedfeeder
Archetypes-based folder that turns external feed entries into content items. Works in Plone 4.3 and 5.
