JSON feed

Description

Pretty simple, really. Adds a new type of feed you can subscribe to. Simply
add ?feed=json to anywhere you get a normal feed to get it in JSON form
(but with a cutdown version of events).

Version 1.1 added support for JSONP. To get a JSONP response instead of a
normal JSON structure, simply add jsonp=callbackName to your query, where
callbackName is the name of the function to be wrapped with.

To use this with jQuery, you’ll want to do something like:

$.getJSON("http://example.com/feed/?feed=json&jsonp=?",
       function(data){
               console.debug(data[0].title);   // print title of first item to firebug console
       });
});

FAQ

There doesn’t appear to be much in the feed is there?

That’s right, I made this plugin for a very specific purpose – to provide
feeds for information screens around a University campus. It’s very simple,
so should be easy to modify, or contact me and I might do it.

Why does it require 2.7.1?

It probably doesn’t, but I’ve not tested it on any other version. Try it
and see, and let me know 🙂
