New Capabilities for the /feed resource in the REST API

The /feeds API resource has been a long-standing part of the FeedBlitz REST API, but it was a tad limited. It only supported the GET method and was pretty limited in what it told you about the feed itself.

So I’m excited to announce the following changes to the RSS feed API:

  • It tells you more! Including time stamps, etag and diagnostic data.
  • Fetches may be filtered by a status parameter, so you can (for example) home in on feeds where the source is failing.
  • Core elements may now be edited via the API via POST.
  • DELETE is also supported for when a feed has reached the end of its useful lifetime.
