Custom Module: RSS Feed for your events

Creating an RSS Feed of the calendar events was always a difficult task. The first solution that came out required a direct connection to the database and wasn’t able to handle any type of recurrence. The second solution worked slightly better, but wouldn’t validate and the time format wasn’t accepted by most feed readers.

Some time last year, I was tasked by a client to create a feed that actually worked. I managed to create something that was simple, yet worked very well. Then I forgot all about it.

This week, I was contacted by another client, as he too was disappointed by what was available for feeds. I dug through my piles of code and found this gem. It was too good to let it go forgotten again, so I decided to expose it to the rest of the world.

It has been created with ease of customization in mind. It will fit for all situations where you need a feed. You can add it as a site feed so that the feed icon shows up in the address bar, or you can provide a feed link for each of your categories, all from a single install. Basically, if you use the List module to display your events, you can provide a feed that will show that exact list to your visitors. Keep your visitors and clients up to date with no effort!

This module follows the regular pricing as previously outlined, and comes with a detailed ReadMe file explaining how to integrate it into your own site. Please contact me before sending any payment so that I can confirm that I have a valid contact email to send the code to.
