Next we create the contents of the feed. To do so we need to access our model and pass the data to the RSS renderer. As a first step we render the required tags of the channel element.

^ ToDoList default
ToDoRssFeed>>renderContentOn: rss
self renderChannelOn: rss
ToDoRssFeed>>renderChannelOn: rss
rss title: self model title.
rss link: 'http://localhost:8080/todo'.
rss description: 'There are always things left to do.'

A full list of all available tags is available in the following table.
