I'd like to add an RSS feed of "today's featured article" and possibly "in the news" to my RSS reader. Is this possible?

Here is the URI for Wikipedia's Featured Article atom feed:

  • Nice! It's a shame there are no tags to filter by category, but it's better than nothing. – RomanSt Dec 21 '15 at 16:16

Information about Wikipedia's feeds is on the page Wikipedia:Syndication.

The two feeds are provided by third parties.

According to the page, the feed of “Today's Featured Article” is at http://feeds.feedburner.com/WikipediaTodaysFeaturedArticle.

The feed of “In the news” was created by me some time ago and it's available at http://itn.svick.org/. (The same news item will sometimes appear twice in the feed, if the page title the news item links to changes.)

  • I've stumbled across that feed before, but sadly, it appears to be broken. – RomanSt Aug 18 '13 at 17:56
  • It seems you're right, I didn't actually check it. There seems to be another feed that actually works, I have updated the answer. – svick Aug 18 '13 at 18:33

you can try generate date in url:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:FeedItem/featured/20181226000000/en
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:FeedItem/featured/20181226000000/en

20181226 => 2018/12/26

No guarantees!

  • Thanks but that's not at all what I'm after. I was looking for an RSS feed of all featured articles as they come out. – RomanSt Dec 26 '18 at 19:11
