The News Tool is an aggregating RSS reader for use in the Kuali Mobility Enterprise framework. The tool can be configured for multiple RSS feeds that will all be presented to the user in a consistent user interface. The tool also provides a caching mechanism to minimize the need for data retrieval and parsing during use.

The News Tool has a straightforward configuration for most use cases requiring only the information about the RSS feeds to be used. The News Tool is pre-installed into the KME framework as part of the base distribution making it quick and easy to get up and running for most users.
