More Google Goodness

Another interesting Google announcement, this time an AJAX feed API. The API essentially provides the same functionality as Yahoo Pipes but without the user-friendly UI i.e. the ability to create mashups without the need for server-side proxy code. Currently it supplies RSS and ATOM feeds normalised to an ATOM-like JSON output, but the API also supports full XML and “XML within JSON” access to a feed. More feeds types – I’m guessing (hoping for!) the various GData ATOM extended formats – are promised in the future.

  1. Hi, I’ve just finished my new vertical job search engine JobGeni http://www.jobgeni.com that runs on Google AJAX Feed API. It’s pulls the data from several major jobsites like indeed, simplyhired, yahoo hotjobs, monster and jobster.
