Experimental project

This is a sandbox project, which contains experimental code for developer use only.

This projects implements a custom Aggregator parser and processor to process an RSS feed from Evanced, a library event management system.

The parser divides the Evanced description into chunks and themes them before saving them as the feed item's description/body field.

A new entity type is created, 'Evanced item', with a field to capture the item's 'Event type' as plain text. This allows feed items to be filtered by event type in Views.

This module overrides the default Aggregator controller (admin/config/services/aggregator) and assumes that all aggregator feeds on the site are Evanced feeds.

This approach does not duplicate the functionality provided by the Drupal 7 Evanced Events Importer module.

The goal here is to tide over myself, and who ever else needs it, until the Feeds module is ready for Drupal 8.
