Feeds

As well as viewing Indymedia Ireland's content directly from the website, you can also access it using what are known as "feeds". These are a structured form of the site's data which can be read by many other pieces of software, including desktop news readers which can aggregate all your favourite news sources and notify you when new news is available.

There are two feed technologies currently in use and they are known as RSS and Atom, both of which are supported by Indymedia Ireland. RSS is the more popular feed format, though Atom is more standardised and has some advantages over it.

To access our feeds just click on the one of the feed buttons on the left sidebar and if you have a feed reader installed it should automatically open up and subscribe you to the feed.

We have several feed types listed below which offer different forms of our content:

Summaries Feed

This is the default feed with just article titles and summaries. Its ideal if your using the feed to get notifications and then follow the link to the website.

Full Posts Feed

This feed contains the full article contents and is ideal if you wish to view the entire article in your news reader application. Please note however that if an article has attachments then RSS will only display the first one, while Atom feeds will display them all. This is a limitation of RSS.

Comment Feeds

You can also track comments posted to a particular article by monitoring a feed of that articles comments. To access these comment feeds just look at the bottom of each article where you will find an RSS and Atom button linking to the feed.

iTunes Music Store Podcast Logo

Podcast Feed

We also provide a Podcast feed of all our audio and video content, which can be viewed in iTunes or any other podcast client. Please note that only audio and video content which is quicktime or mpeg compliant will be included in this feed, as this is a reqirement of iTunes. To view non-quicktime compliant media such as windows media files please use the audio, video or media feeds listed below instead.

The iTunes button will take you to the Indymedia Ireland entry on the iTunes Music Store where you can subscribe to our feed. The podcast button will open the podcast in your installed newsreader (which will need to support enclosures if you wish to see the audio and video content).

Audiocast Feeds

This feed contains all the audio published to the site in most of the well known formats.

Videocast Feeds

This feed contains all the video published to the site in most of the well known formats. This feed is registered with Democracy TV which is a great way to easily access all of our video. Just download the program and serach ofr Indymedia in the channel guide.

Mediacast Feeds

This feed contains all the audio AND video published to the site in most of the well known formats.

Javascript Feeds

JavaScript option has been reintroduced again as of April 2009

The second form of syndication we offer is via a dynamically generated javascript newsfeed. This is intended for website developers who may wish to include an Anarkismo.net newswire on their own site. Of course this can be done via the above mentioned RSS syndication, but it would require RSS programming knowledge and access to backend scripting facilities. However the javascript newsfeed is simply a couple of lines that be easily inserted into any webpage with minimum fuss.

Several code examples of how to include the newsfeed on your website have been provided on our JavaScript newsfeed examples page

Customised Feeds

While our feeds default to showing all content you can customize a feed to show only a subset of content based on certain criteria. These criteria include
  • author_name
  • search_text
  • topic
  • region
  • type
You can use these criteria by appending them to the end of the feed url as follows
  • For the topic environment append ?topic=environment
  • For the region dublin append ?region=dublin
  • For articles of type feature append ?type=feature
  • For articles where the word shannon occurs append ?search_text=shannon
  • For articles by the author redjade append ?author_name=redjade
You can combine these values also by using an ampersand so if you want to get a feed of bintax articles concerning dublin written by seedot append ?author_name=seedot®ion=dublin&topic=bintax

If the topic, type or region you wish to search for has spaces or hyphens you can leave them out, so Anti-War would become antiwar and Bin Tax would become bintax.

For spaces in the search_text replace them with %20, so ?search_text=bertie ahern would become ?search_text=bertie%20ahern

Note that all text is case insensitive.

If you have any queries about our feeds please let us know using the contact form.
