What is JSONFeed?

JSON Feed, a format similar to RSS and Atom but in JSON. JSON has become the developers’ choice for APIs, and that developers will often go out of their way to avoid XML.
JSON is simpler to read and write, and it’s less prone to bugs.



No bells and whistles, no unexpected behavior, just a jsonfeed for your blog.

This plugin is simple to install, adds no weight to your site, and does what it says on the tin.
