We love the open web!
A few examples of what people built after we published our RSS/JSON feeds four days ago
Refind is the home for the best links on the web. While you need an invite to sign up, links are public — accessible by anyone on the web. Examples:
One day we felt like building a simple chatbot to learn. Since we don’t have an API yet, the simplest interface (from bot to Refind) turned out to be RSS. So we created RSS feeds for some endpoints, examples:
We needed RSS feeds for ourselves to build the bot, but realized that some of the things people wanted to build could already be done with this simple interface — because RSS/JSON are standards! Thus we’ve just taken the first step towards opening up Refind for others.
Here’s a few things people have done since we published the RSS/JSON feeds four days ago:
- Slack: Using the RSS app for Slack, they auto-post links they save to a Slack channel for their team to see.
- IFTTT: Using IFTTT, they auto-post to Twitter / Facebook whenever they save a link to Refind.
- Chatbot: We built our chatbot for FB Messenger.
- Wordpress: Using a simple widget for Wordpress, they show the latest links they save to Refind in a sidebar on their blog/website.
