Getting News feed from external Perch website

Is there a way I can get the news feed from an external Perch website and pull it into another Perch website?

Any suggestions are much appreciated.

Hi James,

If it was me, I would probably think about creating a template on the source site that presents the news as JSON. Then the destination site can retrieve the data and process as necessary.

If you want the news to be stored in the destination database, you'll probably need an app. Perch 3 will give us a collections/import api that would help in theory.

I only need the feed on the external site, linking back to the original site. Is there a way to do this with RSS?

Yeah - I think there's an article on the Perch blog about creating an RSS template - di the same theory as above.
