Tiny RSS Reader

less than 1 minute read


A few weeks ago I hacked together an RSS reader (available on Gist here) with just a few lines of actual JavaScript code in an HTML page. It only took about 30 minutes from start to finish. It’s just a proof of concept, but does the job pretty well. I made this after finding the Google Feed API as well as what appears to be an undocumented Google Favicon Service (you call http://www.google.com/s2/favicons?domain=google.com for example). I don’t intend on taking this any further but have since incorporated both the APIs into another active project.
