vTools Feeds

Where to find available feeds for your Org. Unit:

You can grab all available feeds by signing into http://events.vtools.ieee.org/ and then click on View Feeds link.

 

Format of the HTML / XML feeds are:

 

  • http://events.vtools.ieee.org/meetings/format/start_date/stop_date/asc_or_desc/region#/section_name/ou

Like the RSS feed, you can terminate the URL from the right backwards till asc_or_desc.

format
is either html or xml
asc
is ascending sort of start dates (like RSS feed) and
desc
is descending sort (backwards in time).
start_date
is either a date of form YYYYMMDD or a relative value like -3 or 20 meaning 3 days in past or 20 days in future. Today is 0.
end_date
is a date formatted like the start_date but terminates the list of events
  • http://events.vtools.ieee.org/meeting/html/next/region#/section_name/ou

This form gives only the next event for the unit (also available in xml flavor)

(not valid till version 1.2.0 deployed)

Note that XSL can be used on the XML event and report feeds for statistical collection.
