So What is "Feed to JavaScript"?

An RSS Feed is a dynamically generated summary (in XML format) of information or news published on other web sites- so when the published RSS changes, your web site will be automatically changed too.

It is a rather simple technology that allows you, the humble web page designer, to have this content displayed in your own web page, without having to know a lick about XML!

Think of it as a box you define on your web page that is able to update itself, whenever the source of the information changes, your web page does too, without you having to do a single thing to it. Check out some of the examples where ordinary people are already using this.

This Feed2JS web site provides you a free service that can do all the hard work for you-- in 3 easy steps:

  1. Find the RSS source, the web address for the feed.
  2. Use our simple tool to build the JavaScript command that will display it
  3. Optionally style it up to look pretty.

You are welcome to run your feeds via our server here, but note wqe have now an expanding list of mirror Feed2JS server sites.

Please keep in mind that feeds are cached on our site for 60 minutes, so if you add content to your RSS feed, the updates will take at least an hour to appear in any other web site using Feed2JS to display that feed.

Run Your Own Version

This service runs from a reliable web server at the Maricopa Community Colleges that has been at it since April of 2003. If you host your own web site and can download, configure, and install a few PHP files, then you are welcome to set up your own instance of Feed2JS. Check out the details...

Sites running their own version shoudl see our helpful hints as well as a collection of modifications others have done to enhance their own Feed2JS service.

Become a Feed2JS Mirror!

People are pounding our little old server pretty hard... as of April 2005, we are looking for other sites willing to become public Feed2JS mirror sites. We install a copy of the entire Feed2JS site, and you become a public host listed on the mirrors page.

You do not need to be a mirror site to run your own Feed2JS- the standard download gives you everything you need, and you can wrap the functionality as needed into your own web site. A mirror is a more complete clone of this original Feed2JS site.

Why Are You Doing This?

A very good question! We developed this as an experiment, largely for our own use. RSS was just starting to get popular in 2003, and it seemed like people could use an easier method for incorporating RSS into their own web sites. See our footer for the legal verbiage as far as the open source license for this software.
