Republish & Display Feeds On Your Site Without Coding

image RSS Feeds are becoming more and more popular. Lots of feed aggregators available that aggregates feeds and display, so you don’t have to visit each site for updates. (e.g. Google Reader, NewsGator, FeedDemon…). There are many sites that display feed content online. You don’t have to sing-up. For example, iGoogle, Netvibes, Smashingfeeds.

Displaying feed content is no more tough job now. No need to learn any coding. FeedSweep makes it easy for you. FeedSweep is a service that "republishes" feeds. It pulls news and content from any Internet feed source and displays the contents on your web page or blog - all without any programming! Just set it and forget it.

FeedSweep widgets use industry-standard JavaScript to place feed information on your web page. Your customized FeedSweep code is called a "widget" and is compatible with all the popular web browsers. A FeedSweep widget can be incorporated into any web page, regardless of platform or programming language.

There are two editors for generating widget:

Basic Editor : Quickly create a simple but functional FeedSweep.

Advance Editor : Create a FeedSweep with the advanced features and options.

In editor, you have to fill necessary details about the kind of widget  you want to generate (e.g. Number of articles, width, date, headline, etc…) Also you can choose the appearance of widget. In basic editor, you have choose from predefine style. Where as Advance editor gives you complete control over appearance.

Once you are done with everything, just click on  ‘Get Code’. It will give you the code which you can copy and paste on your site where ever you want to display the feed content.

Below is one of the example.
