Build Social App Feeds

Using the Stream API to build your feeds, streams and personalization into your app is a great way to quickly create social network apps. Feeds like Quora, Facebook and Dribbble are easy with our Feed and Stream API.

Stream has official clients for Ruby, Python, PHP, Golang and Java. We also support Django, Rails, Laravel and Node JS integrations. Community clients exist for Scala and .NET.

Following as a technical concept sounds fairly trivial, but we can assure you that doing it in a future-friendly, reliable way, at scale is a challenge. We leaned heavily on a 3rd party service, Stream, to handle the infrastructure and aggregation, which let us launch Following now and not in 2020. Huge shoutout to their team for all of their help with making the launch a success!
