This implementation is based on our Restlet framework. Alex also implemented a Restlet integration with eXist (an XML database) and used it in this project to store the Atom feeds. We are very happy about Alex’s initiative who brings high quality feed-back to the project.
There is also a simpler Atom extension planned for Restlet version 1.1 and we are exploring ways to share some of this code with atomojo. For those interested, we have already talked about Atom and Restlet in this blog.
Restlet’s extension doesn’t aim to provide a complete APP stack (with storage, administration, etc.) like atomojo, so there is a great open source collaboration opportunity here!
The atomojo project also comes with an APP client implemented as a Firefox extension. We encourage you to try out atomojo and send your feed-back to Alex.
