May 10, 2023 . Admin

Hi dev,

Today our leading topic is laravel 10 generate rss feed. We will use laravel 10 get rss feed. you will learn laravel 10 create rss feed. I would like to share with you rss feed in laravel. follow the below step for how to add rss feed in laravel 10.

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feed is a format for delivering regularly updated content from a website or blog to subscribers. It allows users to receive new content automatically, without having to visit the website or blog.

RSS feeds are typically formatted in XML, and contain a list of headlines, descriptions, and links to the full content of each article or post. Users can subscribe to an RSS feed using a feed reader, which can be a standalone application, a web-based service, or a built-in feature of some web browsers or email clients.

In this example, we will create a posts table with title, slug, and body. Then we will create a factory for dummy posts. After that, we will generate an XML file and list all URLs for the posts. This is a very basic example, so let's follow along and you will get a sitemap file for your website that you can submit to the webmaster's tool.

Let's follow below steps:

Step 1: Install Laravel

This step is not required; however, if you have not created the laravel app, then you may go ahead and execute the below command:

composer create-project laravel/laravel example-app	
Step 2: Create Post Migration and Model

In this step, we will create migration and model. So let's run below command to create posts table.

php artisan make:migration create_posts_table	

Next, simple update below code to migration file.

use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
return new class extends Migration
     * Run the migrations.
     * @return void
    public function up(): void
        Schema::create('posts', function (Blueprint $table) {
     * Reverse the migrations.
     * @return void
    public function down(): void

Then run created new migration with below command:

php artisan migrate	

Now, run below command to create Post model.

php artisan make:model Post

Then update following code to Post model.

namespace App\Models;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;
class Post extends Model
    use HasFactory;
    protected $fillable = [
        'title', 'slug', 'body'
Step 3: Create Post Factory

In this step, we will create Post factory class and generate dummy records using tinker command. so let's run below command to create post factory.

php artisan make:factory PostFactory	

Next, copy below code and update PostFactory.php file.

namespace Database\Factories;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\Factory;
use App\Models\Post;
use Illuminate\Support\Str;
 * @extends \Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\Factory<\App\Models\Post>
class PostFactory extends Factory
     * The name of the factory's corresponding model.
     * @var string
    protected $model = Post::class;
     * Define the model's default state.
     * @return array

    public function definition(): array
        return [
            'title' => $this->faker->text(),
            'slug' => Str::slug($this->faker->text()),
            'body' => $this->faker->paragraph()

Then simply run tinker command and create dummy posts.

php artisan tinker
Step 4: Create Route

In this step, we will create one route sitemap.xml. so let's add it.

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;
use App\Http\Controllers\RSSFeedController;
| Web Routes
| Here is where you can register web routes for your application. These
| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which
| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!
Route::get('feed', [RSSFeedController::class, 'index']);	
Step 5: Create Controller

In this step, we have to create new controller as RSSFeedController with index(). we will get all posts and pass to blade file. we will return response as xml file. so let's update follow code:

namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Models\Post;
use Illuminate\Http\Response;
class RSSFeedController extends Controller
     * Write code on Method
     * @return response()
    public function index(): Response
        $posts = Post::latest()->get();
        return response()->view('rss', [
            'posts' => $posts
        ])->header('Content-Type', 'text/xml');
Step 6: Create View File

In Last step, let's create rss.blade.php for display all posts and put following code:

'<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>'.PHP_EOL

<rss version="2.0">
        <title><![CDATA[ ]]></title>
        <link><![CDATA[ ]]></link>
        <description><![CDATA[ Your website description ]]></description>
        <pubDate>{{ now() }}</pubDate>
        @foreach($posts as $post)
                <title><![CDATA[{{ $post->title }}]]></title>
                <link>{{ $post->slug }}</link>
                <description><![CDATA[{!! $post->body !!}]]></description>
                <category>{{ $post->category }}</category>
                <author><![CDATA[Hardk Savani]]></author>
                <guid>{{ $post->id }}</guid>
                <pubDate>{{ $post->created_at->toRssString() }}</pubDate>
