The source code for DasBlog uses XmlSerializer for RSS and Atom. We also support extensions to RSS like comments and things in other namespaces...something to think about.
Thanks for the tip. I figured someone else had to have thought of this too :) To your point, extending this model with RSS extensions is, again, quite trivial. I literally knocked out this code in 30 minutes, so I’m sure there’s much more value to be added to such components.
Thanks for the heads-up. Your post didn't come up in my Google attempt (again, I might have been sucking at that time.) Although, for my purposes, I would've had to rewrite in C# anyway ;)
Here's the scenerio. I'm contemplating using RSS as a data exchange mechanism. Some of the data can be sensitive therefore the RSS feed generator needs to be aware of the user submitting the URL. The URL will contain parameters indicating the requested data. The potential clients could be any RSS reader or an app that's automatically pulling the data using techniques Scott mentions above.
So, is there a way to securely pass username/pswd info or security tokens to an RSS feed generator?
Has anyone attempted this? Any ideas?
I was trying to download your file attached to this page, but it was pointing most likely to your old site.
Is it possible for you to mail me the code so I can explore it, or just update the link above ?
Thank you in advance
There are better ways to do this in .NET 3.5. I blogged about it: http://jclaes.blogspot.com/2009/10/rss-in-net.html
