The atom feed generator from werkzeug.

Project description


Werkzeug used to have an Atom/RSS feed generator, which was pretty great, even if it didn't make the most sense as part of the Werkzeug package.

This repository is a straight-forward extract of the atom code from Werkzeug version 0.16.1, including unit tests.


install & migrate from werkzeug.contrib.atom

$ pip install feedwerk

Rename imports werkzeug.contrib.atomfeedwerk.atom

- from werkzeug.contrib.atom import AtomFeed, FeedEntry
+ from feedwerk.atom         import AtomFeed, FeedEntry

bugs & maintenance

This project exists to help kick the can of migrating atom libraries when upgrading werkzeug, so the only goal is compatibility with 0.16.1 of werkzeug.contrib.atom. No new features will be considered. Bug fixes may be rejected if they might be relied-on by anyone still using old Werkzeug.

On the other hand, if you like the API that Werkzeug used to have for atom feeds, please feel free to fork this project and build and improve on it! I managed (painfully!) to retain the git history for this module and its tests, so I think it's a good starting place :)


v1.1.0 2022-04-24

Some features we depended on were deprecated in werkzeug 2.0 and removed in 2.1:

  • remove werkzeug.utils.escape in favour of MarkupSafe #2 @mar1ad
  • use Response instead of werkzeug.wrappers.BaseResponse #3 @uniphil

Both changes are backwards-compatible with previous werkzeug back to 1.0. Client code that depends on the return type of AtomFeed.get_response() may need to be updated in rare cases.
