Getting Started


With the Feed API, you can download any public Atom, RSS, or Media RSS feed using only JavaScript, so you can easily mash up feeds with your content and other APIs like the Google Maps API.

The Google Feed API takes the pain out of developing mashups in JavaScript because you can now mash up feeds using only a few lines of JavaScript, rather than dealing with complex server-side proxies. This makes it easy to quickly integrate feeds on your website.

Application Requirements

Applications that use this interface must abide by all existing Terms of Service. Most importantly, you must correctly identify yourself in your requests.

Applications must always include a valid and accurate HTTP referer header in their requests.
