Include external RDF?
How-To Posted by Beat Rubischon on Monday January 07, 09:24AM, 2002
from the wishes-from-new-users dept.
We would like to create an internal newssite based on Squishdot. A killer application would be to include some external RDF-files - ist this possible with Squishdot?

    I've done something similar using both internal (Squishdot) news headlines and external headlines from moreover.com but in my case the headlines (RDF) were incorporated into my portal front page. For the internal newsite, I duplicated the RDF file, renamed it rdf.xml, added the corresponding stylesheet info and created an XSL stylesheet in Squishdot. This rdf.xml file is then incorporated into a iframe on my prototype portal front page (powered by Autonomy). On the same front page I have a separate frame with the moreover.com headlines (in javascript).

    I also have an intranet (powered by Zope) that displays the corporate-wide rdf.xml file (NPS News Headlines) in one frame and another frame displays displays headlines from a separate Squishdot site with our own departmental news (Library News). See front page attached.

    Let me know if you'd like to view the sample xml and xsl files.

        Attached are the 3 files I used (zipped): rdf.xml which is a copy of the default rdf file modified to reference additional dtd and xsl files; and the dtd and xsl files themselves. I have not made any changes to these files for a while, however they do work :>)

        If you add these files to your main squishdot directory, change the reference in the xsl so that the More... points to your URL, they should all work.
