summary: Subscribe to Atom and RSS feeds over pubsub

# Introduction

This module allows Prosody to fetch Atom and RSS feeds for you, and push
new results to subscribers over XMPP.

# Configuration

This module needs to be be loaded together with

For example, this is how you could add it to an existing pubsub

``` lua
Component "" "pubsub"
modules_enabled = { "pubsub_feeds" }

feeds = {
  -- The part before = is used as PubSub node
  planet_jabber = "";
  prosody_blog = "";

This example creates two nodes, 'planet\_jabber' and 'prosody\_blog'
that clients can subscribe to using
[XEP-0060]( Results are in
[ATOM 1.0 format]( for easy consumption.

# PubSubHubbub

This module also implements a
subscriber. This allows feeds that have an associated "hub" to push
updates when they are published.

Not all feeds support this.

It needs to expose a HTTP callback endpoint to work.
