How can I add multiple RSS feeds to my web app?

Asked by yannick (985points) September 23rd, 2009

I’m building a simple JavaScript web app in Dashcode as a Computer Science project. I’ve managed to create a stack layout with a list of buttons linking to the standard ‘feed reader’ template provided with Dashcode. However, I would like each of these buttons to lead to a different feed, within the same app. In the application attributes section, only one feed can be added, so I was wondering if anyone might be able to give me some advice in regards to how I could add more than one feed. Thanks :)

I would highly recommend using YQL (Yahoo Query Language). This query is what you’re looking for.

Copy the REST query to get the combined RSS feed. Add all the RSS feeds after the “in” clause. The sort at the end is so the combined articles are not simply mashed together grouped by the feed they are from but sort by publish date regardless of the feed they are from.

How would I go about using this in Dashcode though..? I basically wanted to have a list of names of RSS feeds, each name linking to the actual feed on a different page. Only problem is, I don’t know how to add more than one feed, so at the moment every feed name in the list links to the same feed… :(
