Adding an RSS Global Distribution

One of the features of Automator is the ability to create RSS feeds. RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an XML-based format for content distribution.  It is a widely supported standard and a very useful "push" method of distributing information from Automator. RSS can be read by a variety of free and commercial client products, such as Internet Explorer, RSS Bandit, SharpReader, and Newsdesk, as well as be integrated with portals and other web server software to provide server-side viewing of RSS. Automator supports the creation of RSS 2.0.



For more information on RSS version 2.0, consult the specifications at Further information on RSS is freely available on the Internet.






Let’s explore this capability of Automator by creating an RSS global distribution that will "publish" information and the location of the project’s output file to an RSS feed.
