Feedity offers several nifty tools and tips for RSS feed users, like a widget, API access, Autodiscovery, and Bookmarklet.
Our Reader app provides a smarter way for you or your feed subscribers to read all your favorite blogs, news sites and other interesting Web content in one place. It's simple, focused, cross-device and social. Check it out at /reader
Google Reader will not be available after July 1, 2013. Import your feeds (OPML) and try out our best alternative reader.
When you click on the bookmarklet, it will redirect to Feedity with the webpage (URL) you're on. It's just a quicker way to build RSS feeds.
To install, drag this link to your browser toolbar: Feedity
You can customize the widget by editing the marked fields in the widget code below.
Look & feel of the widget can be customized by specifying the background and font/link color properties (in the code above). The widget's div tag (id: divFeedityWidget) can also be used through CSS for more control.
Note: This widget can only be used with RSS feeds generated through Feedity or Yahoo Pipes!
The Feedity API (short for Application Programming Interface) has been created to let users and partners interact programmatically with Feedity. Our REST-based API provides a simple and easy utility for creating custom RSS feeds from Web content on-the-fly.
Our API is currently in private beta stage. It will be available shortly for our customers (upgrade to a paid plan
) and developers.
More details about the API will be published on our blog
in the near future.
An important step after creating a RSS feed is letting your viewers know that it exists. You can easily do this by putting a link to the RSS feed on your website or your blog. Follow these simple steps to publish your RSS feed online:
Download the RSS icon image (right-click on the image, and save it on your computer):
Select the HTML code below, and 'copy & paste' it to the appropriate location on your webpage.
Replace the anchor URL (http://feedity.com/your/feed.rss above) with your RSS feed URL, and upload the RSS icon image to your server.
Besides publishing a link to your RSS feed on your website, you may also look at RSS autodiscovery (described below) for promoting your RSS feed through your website.
RSS autodiscovery is a technique that makes it possible for web browsers and other software to automatically find a site's RSS feed. Autodiscovery is a great way to inform users that a web site offers a syndication feed.
To support autodiscovery, a
element must be added to the header, as shown in the HTML markup below. Replace the
value of the
element with the URL of your RSS feed.
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS" href="http://feedity.com/your/feed.rss">
<!-- the web page's contents -->
