About RSS

RSS is a defacto XML standard invented by Netscape for news distribution, now adopted by thousands of sites. RSS is an open format that uses a simple set of XML tags to define a news "channel" that allows any site to provide basic meta-information about your new content (headline, link, description). Others can fetch your RSS file and display your news stories, driving traffic your way. Need to know more about using RSS and XML files on your site? Check out Jonathan Eisenzopf's Using RSS News Feeds tutorial, and his rss2html.pl script, as well as Michael Classen's RSS Viewer Applet. Also see our RSS resources page.

Example RSS Installation

To localize JavaScript Tip of the Day for an include, etc. you can use Jonathan's rss2html.pl script to grab an rss feed, and convert it to HTML on your server.

Here's the cron job to do this (created at 5 after midnight so grab once a day at 10 after midnight each night say):

# docjs - 7-daily tipoday rss-html script - 000329 - abk
10 0 * * * /www/yourdir/cgi-bin/rss2html.pl
http://www.webreference.com/js/tips/channels/today15.rss > docjs.txt

To install rss2html.pl on your server you need XML::RSS etc. to run it, see the script for details.

Comments are welcome
