Easily integrate any Blogger blog

This is just a wrapper around SimplePie to make it really easy to integrate your Blogger blog, with archive menu and category filters, simply using Blogger atom API. SimplePie does the most of the work and you'll need it and all it's pre-requisites.

It uses cache, both for simple navigation and archive, so the page won't be slow at all. That said if you a very big blog it would be better to use some of the PHP API exposed by Blogger.

If you well know your way around feeds and php you could simply use SimplePie to do this. If you don't or if you're lazy feel free to use AtomicBlogger. Keep in mind this is not really a product we aim to develope, so if you feel there's some functionality that you need and you don't want to write it yourself, it's better if you ask for it, cause the actual state of the project is fully what we'll ever need from it.

The live demo is this site. The news in home page and the article section are managed with AtomicBlogger, just filtering different categories over our blog.
