Zend Framework – How To Implement RSS Feeds the Easy Way

Over on their blog, Malt Blue recently released a very informative post titled “Zend Framework – How To Implement RSS Feeds the Easy Way“. this is a nicely written tutorial that delivers what it promises.

Ever wanted to know how to take an existing Zend Framework application where you have posts, records, news or anything else stored in a data source and updated regularly, and make it available as a feed for your users that they can subscribe to?

Well today, that’s what I want to show you.

It’s not a long read nor is the solution terribly difficult to implement. The author (Matt?) gives you everything you need to get up and running with the idea quickly. The reader is given a lot of the HOW and some of the WHY, enough to keep it interesting.

If you are looking to add RSS feed capabilities to your existing Zend Framework 1 application, this is a great starting point.

About Cal Evans

Many moons ago, at the tender age of 14, Cal touched his first computer. (We're using the term "computer" loosely here, it was a TRS-80 Model 1) Since then his life has never been the same. He graduated from TRS-80s to Commodores and eventually to IBM PCs. For the past 10 years, Cal has worked with PHP and MySQL on Linux OSX, and when necessary, Windows. He has built on a variety of projects ranging in size from simple web pages to multi-million dollar web applications. When not banging his head on his monitor, attempting a blood sacrifice to get a particular piece of code working, he enjoys building and managing development teams using his widely imitated but never patented management style of "management by wandering around". Cal is happily married to wife 1.32, the lovely and talented Kathy. Together they have 2 kids who were both bright enough not to pursue a career in IT. Cal blogs at http://blog.calevans.com and is the founder and host of Nomad PHP
