Aims to be the smallest, easiest to use ruby Atom feed generator.

Currently supports only a subset of the most frequently used Atom fields. This example shows everything it can do.

require 'tinyatom'

feed = TinyAtom::Feed.new(
  'http://mysite.com/blog/',
  'My Blog',
  'http://mysite.com/blog/atom.xml',

  # optional

  :author_name => 'me',
  :author_email => 'me@mysite.com',
  :author_uri => 'http://mysite.com/',

  :hubs => ['http://pubsubhubbub.appspot.com/']
  )

feed.add_entry(
  1,
  'post 1',
  Time.now,
  'http://mysite.com/blog/1',

  # optional

  :summary => 'the summary',
  :content => 'the content',

  :author_name => 'me',
  :author_email => 'me@mysite.com',
  :author_uri => 'http://mysite.com/',

  :enclosure_type => 'image/png',
  :enclosure_href => 'http://mysite.com/image.png',
  :enclosure_title => 'photo',
  :enclosure_length => 6227, # optional within enclosure

  :via_type => 'text/html',
  :via_href => 'http://anotherblog.com/posts/999',
  :via_title => 'Look at this photo',

  :media_thumbnail_url => 'http://mysite.com/thumbnails/1.jpg',
  :media_thumbnail_width => 100,
  :media_thumbnail_height => 100,
  :media_thumbnail_time => '00:00:00.000'
  )

puts feed.make(:indent => 2)
# open('atom.xml', 'w') { |f| feed.make(:target => f) }

Output:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<feed xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom">
  <title>My Blog</title>
