SPEC – Liferay CMS as an RSS aggregator
Getting RSS in working for Liferay. The first stage of this is in two parts.
1. Need to look at this sample code to draft out a plan on how to get formatted web content into the liferay database from an RSS feed.
Here is sample code for adding a web content item and structure grammatically in Liferay
This is sample code on how to format the articles in Liferay
We need a simple way of importing the RSS master feeds form an external RSS aggregating App which does the grunt work of registering, de-duping feeds and configuring feeds – this app needs installing on the server and configuring.
This will test the feasibility of this code.
2. For the external apps I will be looking through this list for an actively developing web-based RSS reader project We should look for a RSS aggregating app that supports liferay single sign-in to simplify user experience.
A further stage would do this:
3. Look at the liferay RSS feed generation and make sure it can output full articles and that it supports media enclosures. Permissioning needs checking and testing.
