Exploring the Unofficial Google Reader API

Google Reader has no official API.  However, folks have figured out ways of using the existing API even though Google has not officially published any documentation.

There is a Google Group: Friends of the Unofficial Google Reader API | Google Groups.

And there is a Python library where you can find lots of good API information: GoogleReaderAPI – pyrfeed

There is also a small PHP library: greader-library:

PHP class library for providing access to the Google Reader API. Enables authentication and provides public methods for general Google Reader actions.

I don’t think greader-library supports OAuth as of this writing, but this may change in the future.

Know of any other good resources for the Google Reader API? Let me know!
