Create a js File

Create the js file and in this file call the web service (apis) :

public/my-news.js

$(document).ready(function() {
    $.ajax({
        url: "https://newsapi.org/v2/top-headlines?country=us&apiKey=e03753c9126b408d870a44318813ac3d"
    }).then(function(data) {
       
        for (i = 0; i < data.articles.length; i++) {
		  $('#news').append("<ul><li>"+data.articles[i].title+"</li></ul>");
		}
       
    });
});

This controller module is represented as a simple JavaScript function. It uses jQuery’s $.ajax() method to consume the REST service at https://newsapi.org/v2/top-headlines?country=us&apiKey=e03753c9126b408d870a44318813ac3d. If successful, it will assign the JSON received to data, effectively making it a Greeting model object. The id and content are then appended to the news id and DOM elements respectively.

Note the use of the jQuery promise .then(). This directs jQuery to execute the anonymous function when the $.ajax() method completes, passing the data result from the completed AJAX request.

Create the HTML web Page

Create the HTML page that will load the google news into the user’s web browser:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <title>Google News Apis</title>
        <script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.4.1.js"></script>  
        <script src="my-news.js"></script>
    </head>
    <body>
        <div id="news"> </div>
    </body>
</html>

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.4.1.js"></script>  
<script src="my-news.js"></script>
