How to display rss feed results in a jquery list

I would like to display my blog post results as a jQuery mobile lists. For now all the titles, date, author and snippets are appearing line by line and also I would like to be able to click on each posts and view the contents directly as a mobile format. This is my code:

$(document).ready((function(){
url = 'http://hopexxx.com/category/daily-devotion/feed/';
$.ajax({
type: "GET",
url: document.location.protocol + '//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/services/feed/load?v=1.0&num=1000&callback=?&q=' + encodeURIComponent(url),
dataType: 'json',
error: function(){
alert('Unable to load feed, Incorrect path or invalid feed');
},
success: function(xml){
postlist = xml.responseData.feed.entries;
//console.log(postlist);
var data='<ul data-role="listview" data-filter="true">';
$.each(postlist, function(idx, data) {
$('#postlist').append('<div class="entry">' + data.title + '</div>');
$('#postlist').append('<div class="entry">' + data.author + '</div>');
$('#postlist').append('<div class="entry">' + data.publishedDate + '</div>');
$('#postlist').append('<div class="entry">' + data.contentSnippet + '</div>');
console.log(data);
'</ul>';
});
}
});
}));


html code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge,chrome=1">

<script src="css/style.css"></script>

</head>
<body>

<div id="blog" data-role="page">
<div data-role="header" class="sys_hd" data-position="fixed" data-id="sys_header" >
<h1>Sysads Posts</h1>
</div><!-- header -->
<div data-theme="c" data-role="content" id="postlist"> </div><!-- content -->
<div data-role="footer" data-position="fixed" data-id="sys_footer" >
<div data-role="navbar" >
<ul>

Answer

Try this...

$(document).ready(function(){
    url = 'http://hopexxx.com/category/daily-devotion/feed/';
    $.ajax({
        type: "GET",
        url: document.location.protocol + '//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/services/feed/load?v=1.0&num=1000&callback=?&q=' + encodeURIComponent(url),
        dataType: 'json',
        error: function(){
            alert('Unable to load feed, Incorrect path or invalid feed');
        },
        success: function(xml){
            var postlist = xml.responseData.feed.entries;
            var html = '<ul data-role="listview" data-filter="true">';
            $.each(postlist, function(idx, data) {
                html += '<li>';
                html += '<a href="#">';
                html += '<div class="entry">' + data.title + '</div>';
                html += '<div class="entry">' + data.author + '</div>';
                html += '<div class="entry">' + data.publishedDate + '</div>';
                html += '<div class="entry">' + data.contentSnippet + '</div>';
                html += '</a>';
                html += '</li>';
            });
            html += '</ul>';
            $("#postlist").append(html);
            $("#postlist ul[data-role=listview]").listview();
        });
    });
});

All I've done is wrap the posts in individual list items, and also in a link tag. I don't know what the url for the link is called (what property it is in the returned data), so I've left that as a # for you to fill in.

Here's a working example...
