This project is not covered by Drupal’s security advisory policy.

We are brainstorming about what would be the best way forward with Feeds in Drupal 8. Let us know how you use Feeds or similar modules by filling in our survey:
See #2847682-5: Drupal 8 survey Feeds/Migrate usage and functionality for the results of the survey so far.

Import or aggregate data as nodes, users, taxonomy terms or simple database records.

  • One-off imports and periodic aggregation of content
  • Import or aggregate RSS/Atom feeds
  • Import or aggregate CSV files
  • Import or aggregate OPML files
  • PubSubHubbub support
  • Create nodes, users, taxonomy terms or simple database records from import
  • Extensible to import any other kind of content
  • Granular mapping of input elements to Drupal content elements
  • Exportable configurations
  • Batched import for large files


For requirements and installation instructions, refer to the included README.txt file.


For a guide to using Feeds in site builds or how to develop for Feeds, see the Feeds documentation. On, there is a December 09 post showing how to import and aggregate with Feeds in three brief screencasts.
To see what Feeds can do, you can enable one of the included feature modules: Feeds Import or Feeds News (requires the Features module).

Modules that extend Feeds

  • Feeds Tamper is a useful module that provides several ways to transform your data before it gets saved.
  • Feeds extensible parsers allows you to import XML or JSON files (among others) using XPath/JSONPath queries.
  • Feeds Import Preview provides a way of previewing the source content before importing. This can help you with debugging your imports.
  • Commerce Feeds allows you to import products into your Drupal Commerce installation.
  • Feeds Entity Processor allows you to import content for almost any entity type. Be aware though that the module is still a bit experimental, so for some entity types you may run into errors. If so, don't hesitate to open an issue!

For a better reference of contributed modules for Feeds, read the corresponding page of the documentation or use's search.


It's not ready yet, but we are brainstorming about what would be the best way forward. Want to help us? Fill in our survey.
If you decide to use it, don't be mad if we break it later. Anyone who does use it and reports bugs are greatly appreciated.


This should be very stable. We try really hard not to break backwards compatibility. We are working slowly towards a stable release. Check what is planned for the upcoming 7.x-2.0-beta4 release:
#2826403: Plan for Feeds 7.x-2.0-beta4 release


We (me twistor) have closed out all of the 6.x issues. That doesn't mean we don't care about 6.x users. We have limited resources to support this project and being able to close 500 some odd issues is a huge win. It allows us to focus on the issues that affect our users most. For reference, 6.x usage went from 16,000 users to 5,000 from 2012-2016. During that same time, 7.x usage went from 28,000 to 107,000. I imagine this is fine for most 6.x users. If you have a successful site using Feeds 6.x, great. It's time to upgrade. If you're building a new site, then you're on the wrong version. If you've found a bug, and you want it fixed, by all means, open an issue, or reopen an old one. Just be prepared to get it RTBC by yourself.

Feeds powers the news tracker Managing News.
