Hi @mbostock, Biorxiv got back to me but they wanted clarification. I’m paraphrasing below:
“Can you please help us understand what exactly the JSON feed for our COVID-19 does not do relative to what you are trying to accomplish? What kind of auto-updating are you trying to do that cannot be done by loading the JSON feed as it is? Please help us understand what you need.”
This was my response
Thanks for getting back to me. As far as I understand we want to have cross origin requests from the URL http://connect.biorxiv.org/relate/collection_json.php?grp=181
The page is blocking our front-end requests. Would you be able to ask for clarification on the discourse page (Help parsing JSON for Notebook of Latest COVID-19 Papers) so Mike could clarify? I’m happy to paraphrase your question. "
As far as I understand their site just needs to allow for cross origin requests but I’m not sure if I’m missing something. Thanks for your help!
