This recipe shows how to get content from remote RSS feeds using a datasource.
We start by installing the fork of CakePHP's datasources plugin. Download the latest release from http://github.com/mariano/datasources/downloads and uncompress the downloaded file into your
app/plugins folder. You should now have a directory named
datasources. The fork used in this recipe uses a refactored version of the RSS datasource developed by Donatas Kairys, member of Loadsys Consulting. This modified version improves the datasource performance, and adds the possibility of changing the feed URL through a find setting. More information about the original datasource can be obtained at http://blog.loadsys.com/2009/06/19/cakephp-rss-feed-datasource ...
