Introduction

The standard eZ Publish RSS export works, you can relatively easy set up an RSS export. But you have to set up each RSS export manually, which can become cumbersome if you have a large number of RSS feeds to export.

I recall from discussions on the forum (could not find them back, there are just to many hits with RSS), and perhaps there are extensions implementing this already, to use the template mechanism to create RSS feeds, just like you create any view in eZ Publish.

This alternative approach uses a lists of prefered attributes to create each field in an RSS item from the selected objects. This gives a flexible way of creating RSS exports, so you can easily create multiple RSS feeds. This is demonstrated in a project to create RSS feeds based on tags given using the eZ Tags extension.

I like this idea a lot, thanks for sharing Harry!

Also, building an extension on another, well-known extension sounds lovely. Should the two consider merging and joining efforts ?

Cheers and keep-up,
