JSON feed


Today I learned about JSON feed, an alternative to RSS and Atom formats. I’ve almost always chosen JSON over XML. It’s easier to read and write, both by hand and in a programming environment. I would like to live in a world where JSON feeds are popular enough that it is expected that readers support them — so that writers won’t have to deal with legacy XML formats. Because of this I added my own /feed.json. It took one hour, including writing this post.
