A

Atom Syndication Format is a type of Web syndication or feed in XML format which allows users to access updates of a Website in a standardized format.

The Atom Syndication Format was issued as a Proposed Standard in IETF RFC 4287 in December 2005.

Atom feeds are composed of a number of items, known as "entries", each with an extensible set of attached metadata. For example, each entry has a title.

Here is a short sample of an Atom XML document:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<feed xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom">
	<title>Example Feed</title>
	<subtitle>A subtitle.</subtitle>
	<link href="http://example.org/feed/" rel="self" />
	<link href="http://example.org/" />
	<id>urn:uuid:60a76c80-d399-11d9-b91C-0003939e0af6</id>
	<updated>2003-12-13T18:30:02Z</updated>
	<entry>
		<title>Atom-Powered Robots Run Amok</title>
		<link href="http://example.org/2003/12/13/atom03" />
		<link rel="alternate" type="text/html" href="http://example.org/2003/12/13/atom03.html"/>
		<link rel="edit" href="http://example.org/2003/12/13/atom03/edit"/>
		<id>urn:uuid:1225c695-cfb8-4ebb-aaaa-80da344efa6a</id>
		<updated>2003-12-13T18:30:02Z</updated>
		<summary>Some text.</summary>
		<content type="xhtml">
			<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
				<p>This is the entry content.</p>
			</div>
		</content>
		<author>
			<name>John Doe</name>
			<email>johndoe@example.com</email>
		</author>
	</entry>
</feed>
