Let’s face it. RSS and ATOM Suck. That’s not to say the format isn’t useful. But XML is a trudge, it’s not fun to work with at all.
Combined with the differing but similar formats. ATOM and RSS is just a bit of a confusing mess.
A well throughout specification for RSS that uses a format developers love. Furthermore it’s really simple and FUN to implement.
It took me about an hour to add support to the Jekyll blog. But your time will be even quicker with my file as a handy reference!
