Feed Parser

Palladian for KNIME version by palladian.ws; Philipp Katz, Klemens Muthmann, David Urbansky

The “Feed Parser” parses web feeds. The parser is based on ROME, which supports the following formats and version:

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

As ROME is pedantic when parsing web feeds, the parser has been enhanced with various fallback mechanisms, e.g. when parsing XML with illegal characters, or when processing date entries whose format does not conform to the respective feed standard.
