ASP.NET reading ATOM

I have a project that will utilize ATOM for a web service. I notice ATOM is simply XML with a value that uses JSON. I can read both. I was thinking of reading the XML, then when I get to the JSON, read it using the JSON reader. However, I do notice there is a Nu Get package for ASP.NET and ATOM. But I can't tell if it is something worth the effort to try and install.

Anyone with experience actually using ATOM who would recommend a library? Or just roll my own as I indicated above?

thanks!

So you want to consume a news feed?

I notice ATOM is simply XML [..]
Correct.

[..] with a value that uses JSON.
I'm not aware of that.

I was thinking of reading the XML, then when I get to the JSON, read it using the JSON reader.
Can you post a sample?

Imho you don't need a package for parsing ATOM. Cause parsing XML is straight forward and ATOM is pretty simple. On the otherhand, when you need the entire information of an Atom feed in an object graph, then such a packet may make sense.
So it depends on your use-case.

Can you clarify where JSON is part of your problem?

It could be that this particular API happens to be sending json name value pairs as one of their strings. I hadn't worked with ATOM before, so thought maybe that was standard practice for ATOM, but it's probably just this one client. So I'll just run the json through my normal converter for that string.

And no, this has nothing to do with a news feed, although ATOM examples show that it can be used for that.
thanks!
