Full Text RSS

Of course, if your website publishes content, you should absolutely publish RSS feeds (or Atom feeds, but not both!). Luckily, a lot of publishers eventually do, even if they sometimes have trouble dealing with auto-discovery. However, a lot of these publishers will publish truncated RSS feeds, and that’s generally a...  

Hijacking API requests with Service Workers

Last week, we’ve seen how to add a Service Worker to our feed reader so that it loads faster by caching its shell. One of the direct benefits of this is that our application shell is now also available offline, even when the browser is not connected to the web....  

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...

This is an incredibly powerful API which lets you filter the...  

Welcoming Google Feeds API users

It finally happened, Google shutdown their feed API after 6 months of deprecation. Many many websites are now broken and yours may be too. Superfeedr is an alternative and we’d love to see you move over. TL;DR Superfeedr is not exactly like Google. Yet, what you achieved with their API...  

Converting RSS to JSON

Every year which passes makes it more obvious that JSON is the format of choice when it comes APIs. Yet, the web is based on HTML and RSS feeds also use XML-like formats. JSON is also often how mobile or web application share data between the backend and the frontend....  

Superfeedr's null device

Many people, us included, see the web being a complex operating system. A consequence of this is that we embrace the Unix philosophy of small components loosely coupled using streams for data in and out. With that in mind, for subscribers, Superfeedr is mostly a piece of code which takes...  

PubSubHubbub for Drupal with multiping
