This Tutorial shows how to connect a data feed (RSS, XML, JSON) into EachScape and make it available as a Live Feed in the app.
The data feed can come from any source of data, any CMS, including EachScape Cloud Collection.
In this tutorial we use a feed from the BBC, feel free use any feed you like.
For a video tutorial, check the RSS Feed Reader Tutorial
Choose a Data Source
Connect Data Source into EachScape
Go to the "Connect" tab.
Click on "New Source".
Here we want to plug a 3rd party Data Source, choose 'Data Feed'
At that point you need to decide:
How you want to store the data in the app.
In our example we want dynamic data, stored as feed - not SQL DB - in our aoo.
We will choose Live Feeds
If you have your own feed use it, otherwise we can use this BBC data feed: http://feeds.bbci.co.uk/news/rss.xml
and show you the fields in the Data Descriptor.
Check that you are using a standard feed structure.
Expert Users can Edit the Data Descriptor
You can now associate the Live Feed Data Source to your app by going to your app/apps in the "Apps" tab and click in the Navigation Panel "+" on the left side of the builder where it says "New/remove data source".
