+About the module
+================
+
+The OData Support module for Drupal allows Drupal 7 site builders to add data
+from one or more Open Data Protocol (OData) feeds to articles and other content
+types.
+
+What is OData?
+==============
+
+The Open Data Protocol (OData) is a Web protocol for querying and updating data
+that provides a way to unlock your data and free it from silos that exist in
+applications today. OData does this by applying and building upon Web
+technologies such as HTTP, Atom Publishing Protocol and JSON to provide access
+to information from a variety of applications, services, and stores.
+
+Installation
+============
+
+1. Upload the odata_support folder to your Drupal site.
+2. Open the module configuration page (admin/modules) and enable the module,
+ click Save.
+3. Click the module’s Configure link, and add an endpoint:
+ a. Enter (for example) http://odata.netflix.com/v1/Catalog in Add an
+ Endpoint.
+ b. Click Save and verify that NetflixCatalog now appears in the list of
+ endpoints.
+ c. Optionally, change the default paging limit or set up a proxy to use
+ when fetching results.
+
+Usage
+=====
+
+Add a new article (or other content type) by clicking the Add Content link, and
+add a title and some body text. Scroll down to the OData section and use the
+query builder to customize the OData query.
+ * Click values in the table to filter by that value, or click (expand)
+ links to drill down into queries.
+ * Click undo to back up a step, or Reset to start over.
+ * Click Advanced to edit the query manually and $select certain columns or
+ limit to so many $top results, etc. – see odata.org for syntax rules and
+ available options.
+ * URLs and images in the query results are automatically linked.
+ * To add more than one data table to an article, click Add another item.
+
+Once you’re satisfied with the query, scroll to the bottom of the form and click
+Save. You should see the data table below your post’s body. Each time the page
+is displayed, live results are fetched from the OData endpoint.
