SFDUG - Feeds and the Feeds Ecosystem

Learn how to slurp up data using Feeds.

Long time Drupal developer and Feeds maintainer Chris Leppanen (aka Twistor) will be sharing the power of the feeds module with the group.

We'll go over the core concepts. Get our hands dirty with some examples, and cover some contributed modules that extend Feeds in interesting and useful ways.

    Again, thanks Chris for the fantastic talk. The new Entity Field Query finder was exactly what I needed and I was able to get it working this morning. Also, Chris, I'm still interested in helping with UI/UX and design work. Ping me.

    The good: another side job. The bad: can't attend this month. Sorry for the late change in RSVP. More pizza for others though.

    I'm a Toronto based Drupaller and will be in SF for a couple of weeks starting July 24. It looks like the timing wouldn't work out for the regular SFDUG meetups but I’d love to meet with anyone who wants to talk Drupal (UX, site building, development…) over beer or coffee. $connect = $interested ? drupal_contact(‘User Advocate’) : t(‘Have a great time in SF!’);

      Hi Luke, Thanks for the heads up on that. I will definitely try to get there. Looking forward to meeting the Oakland Drupal folk.

    I would like to set up a feed from my laptop system where I develop content, and my server at a hosting ISP. Most feeds seemed to be designed to pull input from another site into the Drupal site. If that is the case, how does my server find my laptop?

      The feeds process expects the source to be available at the times when it polls. The model design is based on the assumption that the server/source is awaiting for contact by the client at all times. If you need to push when time is best for the source, you needs a connection module/process that is based on the model where the source (your laptop) can determine when to "push". This can be done, where the sounce initiates contact, and posts the data. There is one such protocol provided in core, it is the remote blog posting protocal that in installed with the blog module. If that one does not do what you want, then you will need to locate or create a module that will provide the sending of the data as you wish. Depending on how the resulting data is stored, you may need to use Drupal, or you may be able to create a web service that is outside of Drupal and yet sends the data to a database server that can be used by Drupal.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
