Displaying an RSS feed in WordPress
January 04, 2011 @ 10:03:52

Rob Allen has posted a method he's come up with for displaying an RSS feed right in with the rest of the content of your WordPress blog. The key is in the simplicity of the MagpieRSS library.

My wife decided that she wanted to display a list of her latest AudioBoos in the sidebar of her blog. She looked at the AudioBoo JavaScript widget but decided it wasn't subtle enough and so she enlisted me to solve her problem. It turns out that AudioBoo has an RSS feed, so a simple plugin was required. I had a quick look on the extension site, but most are now "widgets" which her theme isn't set up for or didn't provide an unsigned list. Hence, I whipped up a small extension for her.

With the help of Magpie, a simple call to "fetch_rss" was all it took to pull in the AudioBoo RSS feed and a bit of PHP to loop through it and pull out the relevant bits. They're all displayed in a simple list - you can see it in action on her blog (look for the "Audioboo Updates" section).

Crynobone's Blog:
Creating our own RSS Aggregators
June 06, 2006 @ 06:09:53

In a previous post crynobone shared a method for creating RSS feeds from the information stored in a database. He's back this time to handle just the opposite - gathering the data from multiple RSS feeds into a simple aggregator.

What is RSS Aggregators? Why you may already familiar with Feedburner, Live.com, My Yahoo and Google Personalized Page as well as other News Aggregators where you have freedom to control your own News. Here your chance All we do need is to get Magpie RSS parser for PHP and some AJAX coding to create our very own News page.

As mentioned, the entire setup revolves around the MagpieRSS library, making it a simple task to pull in and work with the contents of remote RSS files. He even shows how to use a simple Ajax connection to request the latest updates you've fetched and stored in the database.

How-to - Convert a RSS feed to JSON in PHP
May 09, 2006 @ 06:56:50

Engrowe.com has this quick tutorial posted about converting one popular data transfer style (RSS) into another (JSON) using the power of PHP.

Here are a quick set of directions to build your own RSS to JSON proxy using only PHP. You need to download and install two libraries, MagpieRSS for RSS and JSON-PHP for JSON. With these two libraries you can easily create a simple proxy to suit your needs.

The script grabs the contents of the RSS feed and uses the built-in functionality of the MagpieRSS library to re-encode the data into a JSON format. Then, it spits out the result to the browser for consumption yet again...

Gregarius - an RSS/Atom Feed Reader
January 04, 2006 @ 15:53:58

In this new article from PHPBuilder.com today, they talk about the Gregarius RSS reader and how to set it all up on your machine.

This month, I introduce an RSS/Atom aggregator that, so far, does just what I need. It's called Gregarius (a misspelling of gregarious, which means seeking and enjoying the company of others). It's based upon the MagpieRSS parser.

It will appeal to both novice users as well as more experienced developers who're looking for something to run on their own server that they can possibly extend, rather than the usual web-based versions.

They assume you have some experience with PHP and installing external scripts, but other than that, they'll step you through every bit of the way - including configuration information...
