Medium acquires Superfeedr

The web is very different from what it was 8 years ago. We’ve said it several times: publishing and consuming content are new frontiers for most of the web giants like Facebook, Google or Apple. We consume the web from mobile devices, we discover content on silo-ed social networks and,...  

Focus on the Front-End: Building an Asset Repository

Change is afoot in Superfeedr’s websites—change in the form of patterns, centralization, and standardization. In the summer of 2014, a team from Van Patten Media Inc.—in this case, Chris Van Patten and myself—worked with Julien here at Superfeedr to redesign the application’s web interface. We updated a dated design, surfacing...  

Embed and customize River.news

The superfeedr feed API is quite powerful and lets anyone build any kind of application which consumes RSS feeds, whether it’s on the web, a mobile application, or processed on the server side. Building and maintaining servers is not always trivial, which is why more and more applications are built...  

Instant Articles and the future of RSS

In the past couple months, a lot has been happening on the syndication front. The mobile and social worlds have become more and more aware of the importance of the open web and we’ve seen several new efforts to improve the user experience on these fronts. Mobile Despite increasing bandwidth,...  

Full Text RSS

Of course, if your website publishes content, you should absolutely publish RSS feeds (or Atom feeds, but not both!).

Adding Offline Support to a feed reader with Service Workers

Feed readers are more useful when they work offline. Unfortunately, up until a couple months ago, the web’s technologies were not compatible with this requirement. Yet, the introduction of Service Workers is slowly changing this game and, at Superfeedr, we’re excited to see open web technologies catch up with capabilities...

Brand Monitoring

Brand monitoring is one of the most common applications for people using Superfeedr. Most of our customers in this field are agencies and firms who specialise in identifying influencers, conversations… etc. Too often though, companies focus on a few obvious social networks (Twitter and Facebook) when the web offers a...  

Grep.io needs testers!

There is not a week where we are not amazed by the possibilities offered by our Tracker feeds. For example, by tracking mentions of “superfeedr” and links to superfeedr.com, we found this and this within minutes of their publications. This is an incredibly powerful API which lets you filter the...
