Get the O'Reilly Network on Your Website

Thanks to the O'Reilly Network's Meerkat Open Wire Service, with a simple copy-and-paste, you can embed a live feed of the latest stories from oreillynet.com the moment they're published!

It's Easy as 1-2-3...

  1. Copy the following snippet of JavaScript:
  2. Paste this into the Web page of your choosing.
  3. Point your Web browser at your page and watch the oreillynet.com content flow in.

A Touch of Style!

Now the oreillynet.com feed is a little, shall we say, "style-free"! Thankfully, though, we include CSS stylesheet support for easy integration into the look-and-feel of your site.

The feed to your right was styled by adding the following simple snippet of CSS code:

  .meerkatTitle       { font-family: sans-serif; 
                        font-size: 9pt; 
                        font-weight: bold; 
                        color: black;            }
  .meerkatDescription { font-family: sans-serif; 
                        font-size: 8pt; 
                        color: black;            }
  .meerkatCategory    { font-family: sans-serif; 
                        font-size: 7pt; 
                        font-weight: bold; 
                        color: brown;            }
  .meerkatChannel     { font-family: sans-serif; 
                        font-size: 7pt; 
                        color: brown;            }
  .meerkatDate        { font-family: sans-serif; 
                        font-size: 7pt; 
                        color: green;            }
