Per the JSON feed spec, the only required fields at the top level are
title. I’ve finally figured out why some of my feeds fail on Newsblur- they don’t have a
home_page_url, and Newsblur will silently fail rather than showing the feed title and the items.
Here are some near-minimum test cases.
Without going through the rest of the code, I assume it fails because of
None here, rather than a valid string. I’m still trying to test what is required for the
items array but I’ll have to wait more hours before I can get it to refresh.
