Feature: Add RSS feed for /recent

Right now RSS feeds are the closest thing to an officially endorsed “API” that we have. Unfortunately they only exist for individual users/organizations and collections.

The list of recent notebooks however has no such feed, making it impossible to retrieve a list of new notebooks without querying the unsupported, internal API.

The recently-published RSS feed is here:


I think we’re just missing the meta tags to make it discoverable.


How heavily is the feed cached? Will it e.g. drop deleted notebooks and reflect changed titles?

It should be no more than thirty seconds out of date.
