Rss Portlet using javascript to get, parse and render an RSS feed on the client

Project description



Using the standard RSS Feed Portlet of Plone, you may end up in blocked Zope threads when the requested URLs are not responding in a sensible time. This alternative prohibits this by doing the work on the client.


collective.portlet.rssjs adds a new Portlet RSS Feed (JS) to the Plone Site.

This portlet uses the GOOGLE FEEDS API via ajax to get and parse rss feeds.

As a boilerplate

was used.

The dom is manipulated on the client to add the Feed Items.

The portlet has the same markup as the std Plone RSS Feed portlet.
