Syndication Feed plugin

Syndication Feed plugin is a Location Type plugin aimed at using web syndication feeds (RSS and Atom) as sources of documents for SCAN repository. Installing this plugin turns SCAN into a full-functional feed aggregator.

The plugin treats every feed item (an article) as a separate document in the repository. Optionally it can download documents, associated with feed items and parse their content using appropriate parsers (embedded HTML parser is used by default). If this option is disabled, the plugin uses feed item data as a document content. The plugin parses feed item elements to set the document metadata properties (title, description, author and creation date).

The plugin supports a number of syndication formats (RSS 0.9x, 1.0, 2.0, Atom 0.3 and 1.0) and implements feeds caching. It is based on ROME library.
