JQuery JFeed

January 2011 ยท 1 minute read

While working on Foxish I needed to parse some RSS/Atom feeds in javascript. Thinking there would be nice a library for this I took a look around and found a couple old libraries and determined that the best of those was JFeed which is a JQuery plugin.


As I worked on the project I discovered issues with the library and since it was last updated in 2007 it didn’t support JQuery 1.4.*. In working on Foxish I ended up updating the plugin and fixing a few small bugs and today I remembered that I should share the updates.


It now works with JQuery 1.4.2 and so far has handled every feed that 3000 Foxish users have thrown at it.


You can get my updated version from the Foxish src in my github repository here.
