Features

  • Set a datasource
  • Include any fields
  • Filter the feed
  • Paginate the feed
  • Preview the feed
  • Ensure tags meet XML requirements

Similar Projects

Google Search Appliance - this module integrates the GSA with Drupal for use within Drupal itself. If you are not using an external application to handle browsing and searching then the Google Search Appliance module is the module you are looking for!

Views Data Export - this module is another Views plugin which allows for the creation of other feeds, and files within the Views framework. If you aren't looking for a GSA specific feed, and just want something like a XML file or CSV then Views Data Export is what you are looking for.

Use Case Scenario

Views GSA Feed would be used when an external application is handling searching and browsing functionality using the Google Search Appliance. This is the exact scenario this module was designed for.
