The Hypothesis stream is available in the Atom feed format. It can be used with RSS/feed readers such as NewsBlur or integrated with chat and notification systems such as Slack or used to trigger other events in other systems using services like Zapier or IFTTT.

The primary feeds are available at these URLs:

You can filter the stream using various query parameters:

RSS feeds are inherently unauthenticated, and access to private group annotations requires authentication, so you can’t use https://hypothes.is/stream.rss or https://hypothes.is/stream.atom to receive feeds of private group annotation activity.

As an alternative, you can use this tool, created by our Director of Integrations: https://github.com/judell/h_notify.
