A News Aggregator is a web application which aggregates data (news articles) from multiple websites. Then presents the data in one location.
The Internet is full of news outlets that you can use to stay abreast of the latest happenings in the world. With the current increase in Internet usage, most people are abandoning traditional media — such as newspapers and televisions — and heading online to quench their thirst for the latest news. Some of the news media found online have exposed their Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to allow developers to fetch their stories and integrate them into their applications.
There are a variety of API's available for aggregating and consuming news content. The News API allows you to search more than 30,000 news outlets from around the world. For example, you can use the API to know the trending stories in the New York Times, new articles published about a product, or a company reviewed by a blog recently.
In this course we will use the media stack API which is available on a free and paid plan Free. It is a Simple REST API for aggregating Live News & Blog Articles. It is a Scalable JSON API delivering that aggregates worldwide news, headlines and blog articles in real-time.
