Allows you to create a feed for a view, much like Views RSS, except you can specify any custom markup you want (XML, JSON, whatever) instead of just RSS. The module works by providing a view argument and was largely copied from views_rss and modified.
WARNING: This module is intended to allow the quick creation of simple custom feeds backed by views. There are 2 main problems with this module:
- node_load() is called on each node to allow quick creation of feeds - this causes many queries and performs poorly
- The module promotes saving code in the database. This is bad form for complicated code that should be in version control.
If you are fine with these 2 points and simply want to create quick and simple feeds, then you've found the right module!
