We — Manton Reece and Brent Simmons — have seen that JSON has turn into the developers’ selection for APIs, and that builders will typically exit of their technique to avoid XML. JSON is simpler to learn and write, and it’s much less prone to bugs.
So we developed JSON Feed, a format similar to RSS and Atom but in JSON. It reflects the lessons realized from our years of work studying and publishing feeds.
See the spec. It’s at version 1, which may be the only model ever needed. If future versions are needed, version 1 feeds will still be valid feeds.
We have now a WordPress plugin and, coming soon, a JSON Feed Parser for Swift. As more code is written, by us and others, we’ll update the code page.
See Mapping RSS and Atom to JSON Feed for extra on the similarities between the codecs.
This webpage — the Markdown files and supporting sources — is up on GitHub, and you’re welcome to remark there.
This webpage can be a weblog, and you may subscribe to the RSS feed or the JSON feed (in case your reader helps it).
We labored with a number of people on this over the course of a number of months. We checklist them, and thank them, at the underside of the spec. But — most importantly batman t shirt black quote — Craig Hockenberry spent a little time making it look pretty.
