API Methods

Error Handling

If an error occurs, the API response will be a JSON object where the status indicates there has been an error:

{ "status": "error", "message": "Detailed description of error" }

The JSON object will also include a detailed message of the error, and which fields were responsible, if applicable.

JSON Format

When posting content to the feed/outgoing/items/edit and feed/outgoing/items/add endpoints, you must adhere to a very specific JSON format. Our format is a valid JSON array with very specific field names.

One item:

[{"title": "Title 1", "description": "Description 1", "link": "http://www.url1.com", "guid": "12345"}]

Many items:

[
  {"title": "Title 1", "description": "Description 1", "link": "http://www.url1.com", "guid": "12345"},
  {"title": "Title 2", "description": "Description 2", "link": "http://www.url2.com", "guid": "67890"}
