Not sure if anyone's already covered this, since I'm new around here, but it seems like a perfect thing to be able to render searches as RSS summaries for inclusion in things like say a SlashCode site's SlashBoxes, or any of the other random web site things which consume RSS. Is this just a matter of:

  1. Making a topic that invokes the appropriate search and
  2. Making an RSS skin for a search and accessing the topic with the appropriate skin name?

On the other hand, though this would probably be a plugin, how about pulling RSS headlines from other sites into a TWiki topic? (Looks like SlashdotPlugin is supposed to do this. -- MikeGallaher)

The latter is probably easily done with a Plugin.

Pushing RSS should be easy to put into the search functions, adding a RSS output option. A binary bin/rss-output (similar to bin/search) and a specfic template (rss.tmpl) would complete the work.

I'd hacked up an RSS-generating search results template in a previous release of TWiki, but it involved tweaking the search code (but not much). I have to do it again in the newer TWiki version, so I'll look for a more elegant way to do it. Either way, I'll post the patch and say so here.

For better or worse, I've refactored Search.pm (from the Sep 2001 release) to separate content from presentation. I extracted code into two new modules SearchFormatter and TopicInfo. I did this initially so I could better understand what the code was doing. It might make it easier to plug in new search engines and template engines, so I'll attach the files here. There's still some work to do, but, when isn't there?

This might relate to these topics:

Check out the new FormattedSearch, you might be abe to do it without changing the TWiki core code.

The TWiki core using FormattedSearch can create RSS feeds, see TWikiSyndication and WikiRssExtension.

TWiki has now a RSS reader, Plugins.HeadlinesPlugin
