web2.0: Google Apps Standard Edition

Monday, February 2nd, 2009

It’s getting harder and harder to find the Google Apps Standard Edition registration page. The default link point to the premium edition. Anyway, if you click on “Compare Editions” you get to the page with both editions:

web2.0: Youtube RSS API

Friday, January 30th, 2009

Getting the User RSS:

  1. http://www.youtube.com/rss/user/[username]/videos.rss
  2. http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/base/users/[username]/uploads?alt=rss&v=2&client=ytapi-youtube-profile

#2 seems to be the official google GDATA way, but it does not get the same list that you can see in the user’s profile. #1 gives the expected result. I cannot find a way to get the “videos” view with the #2 (GDATA) format (note: changing “uploads” to “views” does not work). I will look more into it and update this post.

web2.0: Craigslist API – Getting RSS for a specific query

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

Just found out that if you add “&format=rss” to any Craigslist URL, you get the RSS format.

This was probably a known API, but somehow it took me some time to find it out (clicking on the URL bar RSS Icon does not always give the RSS content of the current query)

Example:

Web page: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/search/sss?query=prius

RSS page: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/search/sss?query=prius&format=rss

Who said craigslist was a closed service!
