  • Lucee 5+
  • ColdFusion 2018+


Just drop into your modules folder or use CommandBox to install

box install cbfeeds

The module registers the following mappings in WireBox:

  • FeedReader@cbfeeds - Reads feeds with caching enhancements
  • feedGenerator@cbfeeds - Generate all kinds of feeds

Then you can use each of the model objects to read or generate feeds to your heart's content.


The module can be configured via settings in your ColdBox.cfc in a structure called feeds:

feeds = {
    // leverage the cache for storage of feed reading, leverages the 'default' cache
    useCache  = true,
    // The cache provider to use for storing the cached elements
    cacheProvider = "default",
    // where to store the cache, options are: [ram, file]
    cacheType = "ram",
    // if using file cache, the location to store the cached files
    cacheLocation = "",
    // the cache timeout for the items in seconds
    cacheTimeout = 30,
    // the http timeout for the cfhttp operations in seconds
    httpTimeout = 30

Samples + Documentation

If you want examples just look at the shell sample app in the repository:
