Viewing the Raw Xml for RSS Bandit Newspaper Views Using an Identity Transformation

0 comments suggest edit

Ok, the title is a mouthful, but it addresses a concern with the new alpha version of RSS Bandit. As of the current build, the feature to view the raw XML before it is rendered by the stylesheet is no longer there.

However, here is an identity transformation you may use. Just copy this to the templates sub folder of your RSS Bandit installation. You can then go to the Display menu (via Tools | Options) and select the Identity.fdxsl for your stylesheet. Afterwards, view any feed and then view source to see the raw XML.

    I've updated the link. Sorry about that. The file was there but I think .Text (or IIS) was trying to render fdxsl. I zipped it up.

    I'm using v1.3.0.13 from CVS, and there's still "View Source" in the context menu for feeds.

    The difference is that "View Source" for the feed shows the original xml from the feed. RSS Bandit converts that xml into its own format (I think it's RSS 2.0). Also, the newspaper view renders unread items, so the xml will be slightly different.

    Ok, I see the point.
