Does your app or website use YQL?

We're looking for some cool apps or websites that use YQL.

Please reply to this post if you want to potentially be featured on YDN as a product that uses YQL.

Thanks! -Paul YQL Team

  • I have my website use YQL to go into http://freerice.com, pull members of my group, and then go into their page and use YQL again to pull their stats. I also use it to pull how much money my Relay for Life team has raised. I am actively integrating YQL as much as possible into my site. It is really helpful because I can't do any server-side scripting, so YQL is the perfect solution. My website is http://helpinghuskyobjective.weebly.com.

  • Hello Paul,

    Yes, we're using YQL but are having some stability issues with tables.

    Can you get in touch with me?


  • Oops.

    Here's an example: http://tumby.me/tpage2.html?t=pbsthisdayinhistory

  • Alec thanks for your post!

  • Paul,

    We're consistently getting lots of 400 errors%u2014too many.

    Please check for a VM from me.


  • Paul,

    It's quickly becoming unusable.

    Hope to hear from you today.


  • Is anyone going to check into this?

    It's been five days without a response.

  • I use YQL for financial data visualization: http://visifolio.appspot.com

  • Why would you ask for cool sites when folks are having so many problems with your tables. PLEASE address the seemingly hundreds of requests about "TABLE IS CURRENTLY BLOCKED".

    You don't seem to be listening to your users. Your tables are timing out based on globals calls on not individual calls. PLEASE FIX THE PROBLEMS, or don't ask for cools sites because it COOL site infers that it is a 24/7 up and running site.

  • The 'Watch' (stock watch list) tab of my site uses YQL finance:


    Frequently getting this result for queries like the one below for the last few weeks (even today - Sun):



  • Larry,

    What tables are blocked for you?

    Thanks -Paul

  • I have an app which is yet to be release, however I seem to be coming across a few errors. For example just getting quotes on the Dow Jones Index seems to cause an issue.

    select * from yahoo.finance.quotes where symbol = "^DJI"

    Returns with the error (for both JSON and CSV): Column mismatch: [Ask, AverageDailyVolume, Bid, AskRealtime, BidRealtime..............

    Here is link to the query in the console

    Many thanks Tom

  • My App is using YQL to query forex data, but the front website have not been released. Further more, I hope to query future and option data from YQL, but it seems a little harder than querying forex. YQL is a good data source.

  • Hi Paul,

    Check out http://simfol.io/valuation/?sym1=yhoo

    This is a stock valuation tool using historic and estimate financial data. I use YQL to pull all the data you see in the tool.


  • Hi Paul

    We have been using YQL for about a year now. Pulling calendar data from a slow server and using YQL as proxy for javascript based web-apps like: http://www.folkekirken.dk/gudstjeneste/kirkekalender/

    I have made others based on YQL but they are on intranets. We also use YQL as part of the official API, that enable users (primarily newspapers) to request and pull calendar events from all of Denmarks churches.

    PS: However I do have some issues with the service today (which is why I saw your request). But it has been running without problems for almost a year. So, up until today, I would say that the service has been cool and great :-)

    Cheers Lars

  • Hello Paul

    we are very interested to use YQL but unfortunately the query is not supported for Indian stock market , we are building one large web app where wee need to show BSE and NSE tickers with live updates , so we thought to use yahoo financial services but I have tried a lot in the console the below line but this is return with zero data

    select * from yahoo.finance.quotes where symbol IN("^BSESN")

    For that result we can't able to use yql , I have also change the symbol ^BSESN with other Indian company names like reliance ,tata but nothing is shown, feeling very poor......

  • HI, I have a site where I am building features that are being dropped by iGoogle. So far, I am my only user, but would welcome others. Mainly I miss GoogleReader and iGoogle, so I have an RSS feed reading page, and a stock watching page.

    My site is at http://www.customconfiguration.net.

    I have noticed in some early mornings or late Sundays, I get a 404 error from the following URL - http://query.yahooapis.com/v1/public/yql?q=select%20*%20from%20yahoo.finance.quotes%20where%20symbol%20in%20%28%22ARR%22%29&env=<store://datatables.org/alltableswithkeys>

    My hosting provider said I may ask to be added to a "white list" for the servers they give me? Is there such a thing?

    Thanks, Brian

  • My website used yql until about a week ago. Then it stopped working. Has the fantasy baseball service been discontinued?
