  • GET /v2/subscriptions/525.json will return the feed with an id of 525
{
  "id": 525,
  "created_at": "2013-03-12T11:30:25.209432Z",
  "feed_id": 47,
  "title": "Daring Fireball",
  "feed_url": "http://daringfireball.net/index.xml",
  "site_url": "http://daringfireball.net/"
}

About extended Mode

The extended mode includes a additional meta-data for subscriptions. Currently this includes a json_feed key with all of the additional metadata that a JSON Feed offers.

[ { "id" : 1, "feed_id" : 1, "site_url" : "https://micro.blog/", "title" : "Micro.blog - manton timeline", "feed_url" : "https://micro.blog/feeds/manton.json", "created_at" : "2019-05-23T23:49:14.487938Z", "json_feed" : { "favicon" : "https://micro.blog/images/icons/favicon_32.png", "feed_url" : "https://micro.blog/feeds/manton.json", "icon" : "https://micro.blog/images/icons/favicon_256.png", "version" : "https://jsonfeed.org/version/1", "home_page_url" : "https://micro.blog/", "title" : "Micro.blog - manton timeline" } } ]

Status Codes

  • 200 OK will be returned if found
  • 403 Forbidden will be returned if the user does not own this subscription

Create Subscription

  • POST /v2/subscriptions.json will create a new subscription to the specified feed_url

Request

{
  "feed_url": "http://daringfireball.net/index.xml"
}
Parameter Required Example
feed_url: string true can be the fully qualified url to the feed like http://daringfireball.net/index.xml, or the url to the website like daringfireball.net

Status Codes

  • 201 Created will be returned if subscription is successful, the Location header will have the URL to the newly created subscription
  • 302 Found will be returned if subscription exists, the Location header will have the URL to the newly created subscription
  • 404 Not Found will be returned if no feed is found at the feed_url
  • 300 Multiple Choices will be returned if multiple feeds are found at the feed_url

If 201 or 302 are returned, the response will be the same as Get Subscription:

Request

{
  "feed_url": "http://daringfireball.net/"
}

Response

{
    "id": 4105850,
    "created_at": "2017-10-28T14:30:39.324314Z",
    "feed_id": 838741,
    "title": "Daring Fireball",
    "feed_url": "https://daringfireball.net/feeds/main",
    "site_url": "https://daringfireball.net/"
}

If a 300 Multiple Choices is returned, it means the requested site exposes more than one feed. In this case the response will let you know what the options are. For example:

Request

POST /v2/subscriptions.json

{
  "feed_url": "https://blog.github.com"
}

Response

[
  {
    "feed_url": "https://github.com/blog.atom",
    "title": "The GitHub Blog"
  },
  {
    "feed_url": "https://github.com/blog/broadcasts.atom",
    "title": "The GitHub Blog (Broadcasts)"
  }
]

Status Codes

  • 204 No Content will be returned if the request was successful
  • 403 Forbidden will be returned if the user does not own this subscription
