RSS Feed Reader

DeprecatedKNIME Textprocessing Plug-in version 4.3.0.v202011212014 by KNIME AG, Zurich, Switzerland

This node parses feeds from the URLs specified in the input data table and retrieves information like title, description, publication date and article link from the feed entries. It is also possible to create a document, XML and/or HTTP response code column. The document will be created from the feed entry information and the XML column shows the XML snippet for the specific feed entry. The RSS Feed Parser uses the ROME(1.0) library. ROME supports following formats and versions:

  • RSS 2.0
  • RSS 1.0
  • RSS 0.94
  • RSS 0.93
  • RSS 0.92
  • RSS 0.91 Userland
  • RSS 0.91 Netscape
  • RSS 0.90
  • Atom 1.0
  • Atom 0.3
