How to get a developer token
What is a developer access token?
A developer access token enable you to use feedly cloud APIs with your live feedly account. It can be used to experiment with APIs on the live environment without implementing the full OAuth integration; or to build personal applications that interact with your personal live feedly account.
What are the differences with a regular access token?
A developer access token has a longer life than a regular access token: it expire after 30 days instead of one week.
It can be renewed by feedly pro and team accounts.
It is limited to 250 API requests per day (500 requests per day for feedly pro and team accounts).
How do I generate a developer access token?
Start here. After you login with your feedly account, a link will be sent to your account’s email address (or in a Twitter Direct Message). Follow this link to retrieve your access token.
If you logged in with a feedly pro or team account, the page will also contain a refresh token. Store this value securely: it enables you to renew an expired access token.
How do I use a developer access token?
Please refer to the API documentation that we publish and maintain here: https://developer.feedly.com/v3/developer/
The fine print
- Developer tokens are for personal use only. Do not share them!
- If you intend to distribute your application, you must get an API key and build an OAuth integration.
- In order to use the Evernote, Dropbox or OneNote APIs, you will need to use the feedly web client in order to link your account first.
- If you upgrade to feedly pro, you will need to generate a new developer access token (the old access tokens will not give you access to pro-only features).
