A lot of hassle is involved in submitting your own table to YQL. First, you would have to open a GitHub account. Then you would visit the YQL repository on GitHub and create a fork. Once you’ve done that, you’d have to pull the fork onto your local machine. After the fork has been pulled, you [...]

Recent Enhancement to the HTML table - http://yqlblog.net/blog...
The HTML table has recently been enhanced to support HTML version 5. The HTML table in the backend uses a parser which autocorrects malformed tags. To support HTML5 we are using a different parser then the one used previously. Because of this change, the output might be slightly different than before. To ensure backward compatibility, [...]

YQL and Comet-based Streaming
Summary The latest YQL release adds support for Comet-based streaming with Downstream Polling (”CDP”), which allows YQL clients to receive updates to their queries in real time. Motivation In traditional YQL, a client must poll the YQL server for updates, by sending the same YQL query over and over again. Each time, the YQL server parses the query [...]

Support for round trip lossless JSON processing - http://yqlblog.net/blog...
There have been many reports (and complaints) in the past about the YQL engine changing the structure of a JSON response from a downstream webservice as part of its processing before returning JSON output to the client. This corruption of JSON response content would manifest itself in a number of ways: JSON numbers in the downstream [...]

Avoiding rate limits and getting banned in YQL and Pipes: Caching is your friend - http://www.yqlblog.net/blog...
Web caches are great pieces of software: they lower the load on servers; and serve content faster to clients. YQL and Pipes love caches for this very reason, and we reward clients making good use of our reverse proxy caches by not subjecting those who get cached content to rate limits. That’s right – if [...]
