Zero Install feed:

The Zero Install Publishing Tools allow you to create your own feeds on Windows.

You need Zero Install to run the Publishing Tools. You can either search for "Zero Install Publishing Tools" in the Catalog or type this on the command-line:

0install run

The Zero Install Publishing Tools provide a graphical feed editor and a new feed wizard.

Feed Editor

  • changes in the graphical view are reflected in the XML view immediately and vice-versa
  • syntax-highlighting and error-underlining in the XML view
