New Design

Today’s an historic day: we are landing on a comet! It’s also a big day for Superfeedr: our new design is going live. We’re very proud to release this new version of our main HTML applications: it’s the biggest change in years and we tried to answer all your needs...  

Detailed Subscription List

As we’re closing on the redesign of Superfeedr, we found that there was a bunch of simple improvements we could bring to the API to bring increase consistency and usability. Subscriptions pagination Our PuSH API always had the ability to paginate over results results when listing subscriptions. However, the page...  

Bitcoin Webhook

At this point, you have certainly heard about Bitcoin. It’s the most famous crypto-currency which relies on a shared ledger to determine every account’s balance. The network is made of clients that run the bitcoin protocol. Everyone can participate, but if you run a web app, it’s not trivial to...  

JSON Path subscriptions

A bunch of our customers use Superfeedr to poll JSON APIs. Rather than wasting their resources, they use us to subscribe to JSON documents using webhooks. When the document eventually updates, we push them the whole document. Yet, most of the time, they’re not interested in the whole document, just...

It’s a very simple and consice protocol to implement realtime applications which get data from the server. In practice, it’s a long-lived HTTP socket, which means that it goes...  

Superfeedr, Hapi & Feedparser

The last couple weeks have been busy with the redesign. We had to update our venerable Rails 2.3.X app and move to a new Ruby2.0 + Rails 3.2 stack, with Rails 4.0 right around the corner. However, to keep our sanity, we also worked on a bunch of side project,...

RSS streaming

In the last year, we focused a lot on storing data from the feeds inside Superfeedr. We started by storing a lot of Google Reader content, using our Riak backend. When introducing our new PubSubHubbub endpoint, we had the opportunity to add things like subscribe and retrieve and later, params...
