Parse RSS Feeds (and create static content) using .ASP?

Discussion in 'C#' started by Canton, Mar 1, 2005.

    Hi all - I'm looking for a specific tool or software that allows for the parsing of news feeds from around the web into my web site. The catch is that I need it in the .ASP language/platform and would like it to produce static content rather than the js-type script that most parsers make.

    I've come across RSStatic, which looks to be a great tool, but it appears to only work with PHP, which I can't use.

    Does anyone know of a tool similar to RSStatic that works in .ASP, or perhaps a version of this or any other tool that has been modified to work in .ASP?

    Thanks in advance,

    ~Canton

    Hi Canton, if you're still looking for an ASP solution to parsing RSS feeds, take a look at the following page. Gathering News Headline feeds using ASP

    I've used this myself on a Windows server with IIS 5.0.
    NB: You will need the MSXML component installed on your server, but I think it comes as standard with IIS 5.0 and upwards.

    I implemented the code library method listed by paulhiles and it works nicely.

    The next step it to control how many items are displayed. I don't know asp, but it shouldn't be difficult to adjust this. It looks to me like making a change here might be a start. Any ideas?

    <xsl:for-each select="//*[local-name()='item']">

    I ended up writing my own code to parse the rss from syndic8.com. It does the job and now I have to take some time to write the code to catalog the feed so it will create static content on my site.
