What is this?

It's a Node package that contains everything you need to read a feed.

It builds on the feedParser package. It's simpler to call, no need to master streams or iconv.

You can also parse a string, so you can deal with files that contain feed data, not just feeds accessible over the web. Or the feed text could come from a database.

Because we use feedParser, we handle all the formats and variability that it handles.

It's an entry-level feed parser that will be useful to people who haven't mastered all of JavaScript.


Sometimes you need to quickly read a feed and do something with it, and don't have time for a major project. This package is for those times.

It also provides good sample code for more advanced feed reading projects.

And as you may have heard RSS is coming back in a big way, and it's spring, and time for a little cleaning. ;-)
