JSON Feed: Syndication without XML, easier for Humans and Machines
Friday May 19, 2017. 06:49 PM , from TheMacObserver
Long time Apple-industry developers, Brent Simmons and Manton Reece, this week announced and released JSON Feed Version 1. They say it best:
The JSON Feed format is a pragmatic syndication format, like RSS and Atom, but with one big difference: it’s JSON instead of XML.
For most developers, JSON is far easier to read and write than XML. Developers may groan at picking up an XML parser, but decoding JSON is often just a single line of code.
Our hope is that, because of the lightness of JSON and simplicity of the JSON Feed format, developers will be more attracted to developing for the open web.
Sounds good to me. TMO now has a JSON Feed as well. If you’d like to see it in action, this web-based feed reader should start to give you an idea.
