pub package Build Status

A Dart library for parsing RSS feeds.


import 'package:feedparser/feedparser.dart';

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <rss version="2.0">
        <title>Hello World!</title>      
        <description>Parse RSS feeds in Dart with feedparser</description>

Strict mode

As long as the input string provided is a valid XML string, feedparser will attempt to parse it and return a Feed object. In strict mode feedparser instead throws ArgumentErrors for missing mandatory fields [as defined by the RSS 2.0 spec]. This is useful for testing feeds to ensure they meet the spec, but impractical when dealing with feeds not under your control.

  Feed feed = parse(xmlString, strict: true);


  • Add optional 'comments' field to FeedItem


  • Initial version.

    Add more detail about the package, what it does and what is its target use case. Try to write at least 60 characters.

  • Package is pre-v1 release.

    While there is nothing inherently wrong with versions of 0.*.*, it usually means that the author is still experimenting with the general direction API.
