The new ASP.NET RSS Toolkit provides a ton of cool RSS
functionality to take advantage of, and allows you to easily integrate RSS
within both your sites and applications. RSS is no longer just about blogging
– it is now a super common data format for people to publish and subscribe
to lots of different types of information (for example: check out
this sample I built using the December CTP build of Atlas for a sample
“Ajax Task List App” that publishes to-do items using RSS).
You can download the RSS Toolkit from here.
Best of all it is free, and all of the Toolkit’s source code is included with
the sample. It includes a number of great scenario samples that you can
walkthrough to quickly learn how to use it.
The RSS Toolkit has been written to work in medium trust
security scenarios – so you can run it on shared hosting servers (note: to
consume remote RSS feeds the hosted server will need to allow remote out-bound
http requests). Click here
to learn more about how to find a hoster that provide inexpensive ASP.NET 2.0
and SQL hosting.
Special thanks go to Dmitry for building this RSS Toolkit in
his spare time. If you download and use it please make sure to thank him
through his blog. J
Hope this helps,
P.S. In case you missed it in December, Dmitry also built
and published a great disk-based output caching module for ASP.NET 2.0 as
well. You can download it here.
