News Feeds

Hey guys, I am new to the yahoo Connected TV(CTV) KONtx API and was hoping for more from the samples provided with the dev kit.

My question is, are there any complete samples that demonstrate the functions similar to the Yahoo! News app on?

the purpose for this is to understand what the best practices for xml, rss, and json are... for example if I wanted to display the info from PBS NewsHour.

XML Link http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rss/law.xml

Thanks, Brent

  • You may check out this sample feed reader app. XML parsing is slow in general, so it is better if you use a json feed. The sample app uses YQL to fetch the json equivalent of the xml/rss feeds.

    Hope this helps.
