End-to-end information management

End-to-end information management
Channel hooks

Awasu lets you manage your information from end to end, all the way from the server through to the client, where it can be analyzed, processed and acted upon.

Awasu is the only feed reader that lets you:

Retrieve information from any data source.
Plugins can be written to retrieve data from any source e.g. a database or web service.
Have access to all the information in the feeds.
Metadata modules give you access to everything in the feeds, even if it's in your own proprietary format!
Analyze and respond to the information as it comes in.
Channel hooks can be attached to channels to monitor the incoming data, analyze and act upon it.


Most feed readers only know how to handle RSS and Atom.

Some of them might support XML extensions commonly used by feeds such as Dublin Core or wfw:commentRss but as new extensions become popular, you have to wait for the developers to add support for them, if it happens at all.

And you know there's no way they'll be adding support for your in-house, proprietary extensions.

Metadata modules

Awasu's metadata modules let you extract and process any information embedded in your feeds.

This additional metadata can then be used throughout the system e.g. you can show it to the user or have your channel hooks process it.
