You can use API Feed Manager to automatically generate the URI request that you can use with your client to pull your feed. The API will provide a URI with your 'client_id', 'secret" and all configurable options. The interface can be accessed at https://www.newslookup.com/api_feed_manager.php . You must have an account and be logged-in to access the API Feed Manager.
Here’s an example of an API request:
URI Format: HTTP GET https://api.newslookup.com/feed/package?client_id=your key&secret=your secret
The variables below provide the manual API settings.
Required Auth Variables (provided at time of free trial and paid subscription sign-up)
client_id : Your unique 'client id'. secret : Your unique 'secret'.
See the 'Subscriptions' link from your Profile menu for your API credentials. Available packages and filters are listed in the tables below.
