This tool parses RSS, ATOM, and RDF news feeds, including their podcast and preburned versions.
To use the tool, just enter the url of a news feed. Be sure to include its http(s):// scheme. To reset form, press reset button or double-click the input field.
First time users may want to try the examples provided by pressing the Try This Example button. Users can cycle through the examples provided by repetitive pressing this button.
To parse urls from the web, search for these with our Feeds Miner. Just enter a keyword or topic of interest in this miner. For instance a search for [health] in this miner returns 90 results, each listing several news feeds about health.
Users may also visit a web site that lists news feeds, like the MIT News, NY Times, CIDRAP,
CNN RSS Services, CDC.gov, or USDA.gov sites. Once there, find the one that interest you, right-click on the news feeds link, and select "Copy Link Location" from the mouse selection menu. Next paste the url in the tool's field and submit it.
News feeds with invalid document tree or hosted on servers that block external requests are likely to be unparseable.
A web feed (or news feed) is a data format used for providing users with frequently updated content. Users typically subscribe to a feed by manually entering the url of a feed, by clicking a link in a web browser, or by dragging the link from the web browser to the aggregator (Wikipedia, 2020). The RAR Parser was developed to simplify these tasks.
The tool takes the url of a news feed, identifies its format, and parses its document tree. Users can then read the feeds without subscribing to the original url.
