I’m working on Sovereign Feeds being able to create brand new feeds for new podcasts, but once that’s done, I’d like a way for the user to be able to let the index know they’ve uploaded their new podcast to their server.

Is there a site I would send them to, or any API I can hit with the RSS URL?

After a new feed is submitted to the index, how long does it typically take for the feed to show up in search results?

· · Web · 1 · 1 · 2

Also, after they’ve updated their feed, is their a podping API I can hit to allow them to ping the database on new episodes, or would that be something I’d have to build my own API for?

@StevenB I think podping will solve all that in one go. I can make you a podping token and then you can just send a ping any time the feed changes. We will see the ping and if the feed doesn't exist in the index we will suck it in. The process should take about 15-20 minutes from the time you send the ping until it shows up in search. Most of that time is just waiting for the next pass from the search indexer, which sweeps every 20 minutes.

@StevenB There is an API for feed submission as well: /add/byfeedurl

But, if you need podping anyway, might as well use it for everything.

@dave I think I'll go this route, and I'll be bugging you and @brianoflondon in the next few days trying to figure out how to get it all to work.

@StevenB @brianoflondon It's dead simple dude. Seriously. Authorization header token and just a GET request with the feed url as the parameter. Let me know when you're ready.
