    XML parser for online feed reader

    Hi there guys,

    I would like to build an online feed reader for a portal-website.
    The users will be able to type in the url of the feed they want to be displayed. Actually something like netvibes feed reader would be great.

    Can you help me with that please? Can you suggest any tutorials on how to build this?

    I have found three different ways on how to parse xml with php:
    XML Expat Parser
    XML DOM
    XML SimpleXML

    what would you suggest?

    thanks

    I would just go with magpierss for handling the feed interaction.

    You might need to clean up the results a bit using striptags but you'll be well on your way to a complete application.

    thanks,

    sounds good, although it supports only rss1. My ultimate goal would be to develop an application that supports both rss 1 & 2 and atom. I can live with rss2 support though, but rss1 only wouldn't be my thing.

    Not many content provider use the rss1 standard anymore, I think most of them use rss2 nowadays, thats the problem with your suggestion.

    Thanks anyway.
    Any other suggestions? Developers out there, please help.
