API of what I’ve been reading

  • # May 2, 2013 at 3:31 pm

    Is there a site (like Feedly) where you can read content from other sites and mark as read. Using their API, output the data on what you’ve read?

    What I mean by data is:

    – Article image (if there is one)
    – Article title
    – Article link
    – etc.

    Perhaps there’s more to it than that but is there a site that would at least allow me to do this?

    Perhaps Delicious can do this or even Instapaper?

    Just in case anyone comes across this, I am using Readability to save articles that I’ve read.

    This is my process:

    +Read an article
    +Choose Read Later by clicking the Readability toolbar extension.
    + Create a tag (you don’t have to).
    + With PHP, grab the data from the RSS Feed

    $xml = simplexml_load_file( “” );
    $json = json_encode( $xml );
    $array = json_decode( $json,TRUE );
    $items = $array[‘channel’][‘item’];

    And to see what that outputs, use:
