Easy Integration

Get API results in JSON format via HTTP GET requests in any programming language and easily integrate them into your applications. To use the API it's as simple as this: you make a request, get the results, parse the JSON and the data is ready to be used.

News Articles Data

In the results, each article has a title, a description, the full content, the url of the article, the url of the main image, the date of publication and information about the source such as the name and url of the source's homepage. These data are extracted with advanced techniques in order to guarantee their quality. This data is our number 1 concern and we do everything possible to always have it accurate.

Response Performance

The response time of the API is one of our primary concerns and we are constantly paying attention to it. The average response time is between 200 and 300 milliseconds. If we could further reduce this response time we would have already done so.

Live News Articles

The API is constantly searching for news articles as soon as a new article is detected it is immediately added to the database.

Historic Data

The articles are kept indefinitely, which makes it possible to search for articles published in 2020 for example.
