GooglePlus RSS Feed Reader in PHP

This content 9 years old. Please, read this page keeping its age in mind along with the fact technology changes fast and the information on this page me be outdated, not best practice, or plain wrong.

I’m working on a GooglePlus RSS Feed Reader in PHP for anyone who might be interested in making a WordPress module or something similar to display N latest Public posts to your stream.

I have some code in PHP that I’m tinkering with. The original idea came from http://plusfeed.appspot.com/.

You can view the progress: https://techish.net/pub/googleplus_rss.php

You can use ?id= to supply your own Google+ ID string found when you login and navigate to http://plus.google.com/

The string of interest here is:

https://plus.google.com/_/stream/getactivities/?&sp=[1,2,"XXX",null,null,null,null,"social.google.com",[]]

Where XXX is your Google+ ID.

The RSS is for the most part complete; I have some code clean-up to work on yet but it is working. Check out the right column and you’ll see my public feed from Google+.

To reference this, simply add: https://techish.net/pub/googleplus_rss.php?id=YOURGOOGLEPLUSIDHERE to the RSS widget source in WordPress – or in your favorite RSS reader. Let me know if you have any problems!

Tip: You can show the latest N by adding ?latest=X to the URI.

I have completed most of the work. I’ve added two user controllable parameters:

id - Integer:  Google+ ID
latest - Integer:  Latest X number of entries to return.

https://techish.net/pub/googleplus_rss.php?latest=5 will show you my latest 5 entries.

I plan to add date constraints sometime soon and eventually I can maybe pull in comments to the entries(?).
