Real-world example for watchlist feed/watchlist token?


Hi, devs.

I’m currently updating the documentation for API:Watchlist Feed, and I was wondering if anyone had concrete examples of sharing a watchlist token so another person can access their watchlist feed.

The current page includes code for doing so, which I want to include if possible, but I also want to provide an example. I am also not sure if watchlist tokens are actually being shared by users in this way, or if it makes sense to.



I think they were mainly meant to give your own RSS reader access to the watchlist feed.
