Where do you get the information about this? I haven't been able to find any docs by Feedly about their API

@penso: yes. many action require oauth token.

client_id=feedly&client_secret=0XP4XQ07VVMDWBKUHTJM4WUQ
this is very valid application token. (used feedly website)

https://gist.github.com/d3m3vilurr/5904029#auth chain generate new user oauth token.

  1. Send GET request
    http://cloud.feedly.com/v3/auth/auth?client_id=feedly&redirect_uri=https://cloud.feedly.com/feedly.html&scope=https://cloud.feedly.com/subscriptions&response_type=code&provider=google&migrate=false

    It should go to google login page (authoriztion chain)
    (eg. https://github.com/d3m3vilurr/libfeedly/blob/5bc8e2cf0/libfeedly/api.py#L91)

  2. Finally you get like this page link
    https://cloud.feedly.com/feedly.html?code=AQAAHSPiHq...&state=

    This code value is short time oauth code.

  3. Send POST request
    http://cloud.feedly.com/v3/auth/token

    with body data is
    client_id=feedly&client_secret=0XP4XQ07VVMDWBKUHTJM4WUQ&grant_type=authorization_code&redirect_uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.feedly.com%2Ffeedly.html&code=AQAAHSPiHq...

    You may get new user token.
    (eg. https://github.com/d3m3vilurr/libfeedly/blob/5bc8e2cf0/libfeedly/api.py#L103)

If you need new application token (like using new mobile app auth), should contact feedly

Hello,

I want to run code to retrieve Feeds and their entries on interval basis. I want to store those in two different tables for later processing.
I tried using curl but it looks very complicated to get the data and insert it into the db.
Basically, I get the feeds and based on the results I retrieve each feed entry. Both are then inserted into the database. However, the code should run on regular intervals so that the news are up-to-date in the db and the front-end where I need to use it.
I checked a PHP Feedly API library but the authentication part is a nightmare because when it expires, I don't know how to automate the re-authentication process through curl (Feedly -> Google -> new authentication).

If anyone has some ideas, tips, or advice I would really appreciate it.

Thanks

@LovishBathla you have to encode the feed id in URI params
