  • Your Timeline

Code Example

Take a look at this example of using the Following Feed endpoint, and read the detailed description below explaining each part of this code.

const data = JSON.stringify({
  "object": {
    "id": "Tim",
    "type": "user"
  }
});

const xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();

xhr.addEventListener("readystatechange", function () {
  if (this.readyState === this.DONE) {
    console.log(this.responseText);
  }
});

xhr.open("GET", "https://api.pipeless.io/v1/apps/123/algos/activity/feed");
xhr.setRequestHeader("accept", "application/json");
xhr.setRequestHeader("content-type", "application/json");

xhr.send(data);
import requests

url = "https://api.pipeless.io/v1/apps/123/algos/activity/feed"

payload = {"object": {
        "id": "Tim",
        "type": "user"
    }}
headers = {
    "accept": "application/json",
    "content-type": "application/json"
}

response = requests.request("GET", url, json=payload, headers=headers)

print(response.text)
require 'uri'
require 'net/http'
require 'openssl'

url = URI("https://api.pipeless.io/v1/apps/123/algos/activity/feed")

http = Net::HTTP.new(url.host, url.port)
http.use_ssl = true
http.verify_mode = OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_NONE

request = Net::HTTP::Get.new(url)
request["accept"] = 'application/json'
request["content-type"] = 'application/json'
request.body = "{\"object\":{\"id\":\"Tim\",\"type\":\"user\"}}"

response = http.request(request)
puts response.read_body

OkHttpClient client = new OkHttpClient();

MediaType mediaType = MediaType.parse("application/json");
RequestBody body = RequestBody.create(mediaType, "{\"object\":{\"id\":\"Tim\",\"type\":\"user\"}}");
Request request = new Request.Builder()
  .url("https://api.pipeless.io/v1/apps/123/algos/activity/feed")
  .get()
  .addHeader("accept", "application/json")
  .addHeader("content-type", "application/json")
  .build();

Response response = client.newCall(request).execute();
curl --request GET \
  --url https://api.pipeless.io/v1/apps/123/algos/activity/feed \
  --header 'accept: application/json' \
  --header 'content-type: application/json' \
  --data '{"object":{"id":"Tim","type":"user"}}'

In this example we're running this feed algo on App ID "123" where an object user "Tim" is the target who will being receiving content posted from other accounts Tim is following. ("Followed" is the default value for relationships, you can override that by explicitly setting follow relationship types. There are more optional controls you can explore in the API reference docs).

To summarize, this example is: "get content posted by users Tim follows"
