CachedFeeder: Cached Feed & URL Builder
Documentation status: in progress
Used with Bedework versions 3.6
This project, based on the work of Jeremy Bandini, Duke University, has four goals:
- To decrease how long it takes to retrieve public events from the server (through caching)
- To improve server reliability by protecting it from being battered by requests for public events (through caching)
- To make it easy for end users and content providers to create custom public events feeds in a wide variety of outputs (rss, icalendar, json, etc).
- To generate custom embeddable widgets that display public events. The audience for these widgets is content providers.
