DevShed:
Creating an RSS Reader the Reader
February 09, 2007 @ 11:43:48

In a new tutorial from DevShed today, they walk you through the creation of a simple (very simple) RSS reader in PHP.

In this article we are going to discuss how to create a PHP-based RSS reader. It would be helpful if you know something about XML, but not really necessary. RSS documents have three main tags: Title, Link and Description. And they all do exactly what their names suggest. I will go into detail about these tags in my second article dealing with 'œbuilding an RSS file.' For now, we will only focus on the 'œreading' part of the article.

They start with an overview, showing where you'll come from and where you're headed to. They include a section introducing the XML handing functions (SAX, not DOM) and use them in a chunk of code to read in the RSS file and handle the contents.
