RSS2OAI is a PHP script that converts a WordPress RSS feed to a minimal OAI feed for harvest into Primo.

At the top of the script, configure:

  • the URL of the RSS feed you want to use as a source. The code only supports one RSS feed to one OAI feed, so if you have multiple RSS sources you’ll need multiple copies of the code.
  • your admin email – this will be published in the OAI feed’s Identity response
  • if desired, one or more text statements to be included as dc.rights fields. If not desired, leave as an empty array
  • how you want the feed to deal with $from dates
  • whether the page itself is served over https
