Project Description

We want to set up 3 rss feeds fetching the top story from 25 web sites. Please note that we only want to fetch the top story from each site, not all stories.

The feeds should be updated as close to real time as possible, and the latest top stories should be first in the feed with the others following in chronological order. The list should be based on the time for each individual story, so that if one news site have the 4 latest updated stories, then it will have the four top spots in the feed.

We suggest using [url removed, login to view] and then Yahoo Query Language to parse RSS feeds externally and collect the filtered JSON output, but we are open for better solutions.

The feeds should be updated as close to real time as possible, with no more than 10 minutes delay from a site is updated til we have it in our feed.

Each item in our feed should contain:

# Title
# Lead
# Image path
# url to source
# name of source
# timestamp

We will place half the agreed amount in escrow when we see one of the three feeds working on a web site of your choice. When all three feeds are working on the external web site, we will give you the credentials to set up the feeds on our site and place full amount in escrow. The full amount will be released when all the feeds are working on our site.

Please read this brief carefully and start your bid with «Hello Desk» so that we can see that you have read and comply with this brief.
