I would like my iPhone app to get dynamic content off the net. This content should be managed using a CMS.
I have gone ahead and installed Joomla on my server and will be using the Joomla web interface to create and manage content.
I would now like the iPhone app to login to my server and fetch the content. I do not want the complete web pages for my iPhone app. Instead, I want the content in the form of XML or JSON or some serialized format so that I can use the data in a custom layout native to the app.
So I am looking for 2 things in particular: 1. How to setup HTTP based authentication for my iPhone app to access data from my server. 2. How to access the content in a serialized format (XML, JSON etc)
Are there plugins/extensions/components I can use to achieve the same.
Any advice on how this can be achieved would be helpful.
I am completely new to setting up/using CMS.
