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 that runs on Google AJAX Feed API. It’s pulls the data from several major jobsites like indeed, simplyhired, yahoo hotjobs, monster and jobster.
