FeaturedFeeds brings syndication feeds of featured Wikimedia content

Example of the English Wikipedia
featured articles feed generated by FeaturedFeeds

Yesterday, we deployed a new MediaWiki extension,  FeaturedFeeds, to all Wikimedia wikis. It creates syndication feeds (Atom or RSS) of Wikipedia’s featured content, such as featured articles or pictures of the day, giving the projects a new way to deliver content to readers and users.
For now, links to the feeds only appear in page metadata; in the future, we will add them to the sidebar on main pages, if communities wish so.
FeaturedFeeds integrates with the existing main page infrastructure: it uses data from templates to show content based on the current date.
Because user-generated content is involved, local wiki administrators need to make a few edits to MediaWiki pages to set up the extension. Instructions and a FAQ will guide you through the process. You can also use my edits to set up FeaturedFeeds on the English Wikipedia as an example.
If you have questions, you can ask for help on IRC, in #mediawiki and #wikimedia-mobile; we’ll be happy to help you set up the extension on your wiki.
