    Javascript RSS reader

    Hi, i need to implement a RSS reader in a site and i'd like it to be js/client side.

    I am looking for good tutorials about this subject (i didn't found any with google) so i can learn more about it, and ready made scripts in case i decide that is the better solution.

    Any suggestions?

    I don't think there is anyone doing this with JavaScript. Server-side scripts handle this kind of stuff so much better.

    Ok, then that's probably the reason i didn't found anything. I looked at the source of a site that has a similar feed read functionality and it was pointing to a RSS.js file so i figured....
    I did found some Ajax guides on the subject, i'll have a look at those.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Mind if I ask why you insist on this being done on the client-side? If JavaScript is turned off, there will be no way for the person visiting the page to see the feed content.

    you still need to have a server side backend to fetch the feed from other domain. I have used this before. It should be quite easy to integrate.

    Anyway, take a look on this jMe rss reader, damn cool
