The NPR SIMILE Timeline allows you to display a listing of NPR stories on a timeline. This timeline, made entirely of open source technologies, connects the NPR API to MIT's Simile Timeline javascript application. You can use the NPR SIMILE Timeline to display a timeline in your blog, to link to a timeline, or to send a timeline in email. Users are also encouraged to become involved by suggesting enhancements to this application or to repurpose the code entirely in your own applications.

Usage Instructions : Determine which NPR stories you want in your timeline by using the modified version of the Query Generator. Adjust the Height of the Timeline as desired, then click the "Get Code" button. Finally, copy and paste the code onto your web page, blog post, etc.
