Subject [Roller-JIRA] Commented: (ROL-1444) Output JSON from FeedServlet
Date Thu, 01 Nov 2007 03:09:00 GMT


Greg Shaw commented on ROL-1444:

This doesn't look like it has been worked on since June 07. I've actually taken on some of
the project that Dolan originally requested this feature for so I'd like to take it on.

I agree with Allen that a velocity template would be the best solution but I'd like to take
it one step further. In add a property that allows for output formats and
their respective content-types (JSON needs "text/json") and then provide .vm templates for
site/weblog and entries/comments in the specified format. This removes the need to modify if another format request comes along (we already have another one internally).

 I'd be willing to do the work to make this happen and donate it back, but as it is to make
this happen I'd have to sublcass virtually all of the FeedServlet and I'm trying to avoid
too much customization -- it would be much nicer to roll this back into Roller.
> Basically as I see it this would involve modifying the FeedServlet and creating several
.vm files (such as weblog-entries-json.vm) for the JSON views.  Not sure how to handle the
XSLT view yet.
