support for Atom feeds

Hi,

Just wondering if support for Atom feeds will be incorporated into Awasu and, if so, when can we expect this feature to be released? I personally think Awasu has the best features of all of the available RSS readers, but I'd love to be able to pick up some Atom feeds as well, especially now that blogger.com has incorporated Atom feeds on their site.

Thanks!

Support for Atom will definitely be implemented soon. The next beta will be released in a week or two and has the sexy new UI. After that, a Blog This! interface. Then Awasu will start archiving content and Atom will be part of the design for that.

BTW, there are XSLT stylesheets floating around the net that convert Atom feeds into RSS so there's no reason why you can't start subscribing to Atom feeds right now. Let us know if you need help setting this up.

thanks!

Thanks, you guys are rock stars! Could I get some instructions for how to use XSLT to convert Atom feeds to RSS?

XSLT for converting Atom to RSS

After poking around the web, I found an XSLT (needs tweaking) here:

I was able to get this to work, but I was unable to get the item summary to display. I'm gettin' headlines now, though!

Thanks again for your help....

Blogger has added Atom syndication to their free accounts. Not that I have anything worth blogging about, but I set up a Blogger account a while ago just to experiment with. I just set up an atom feed and, using Taka's XSLT, I'm now reading it in Awasu!

This is fun stuff :lol: .
