What is RSS?

All websites, and especially blogs, provide the reader / surfer / user with the ability to subscribe to specific sections to receive, through feed readers or custom pages, automatic updates of the content published in that blog. In this way, each user can stay on top of the latest content that he or she is interested in, all thanks to a non-intrusive, high-quality, and above all voluntary, system.

What is an RSS feed?

Each feed or news channel has its own Internet address or URL. However, unlike these, they cannot be displayed directly on the browser, so a feed reader is required. These work much like email programs: Instead of checking a mailbox from time to time to import new messages, feed readers regularly check feeds to get the latest version of your RSS file.

The RSS feed is a file generated by most blogs, which contains a specific version of the information published on its parent site. Each item contained in an RSS feed usually consists of a title, a summary and a link or URL to the source page or the full text. It can also contain additional information such as the date of publication or the name of the author.

The RSS file is overwritten automatically when any updated content appears on the source site. Thus, by accessing the RSS file, you can determine if the contents have been updated and with what texts, without having to access the blog except to read the extended version.

Feed readers can be web applications or local applications that are installed on the user’s computer. Some examples:
