kbreit: lj does have XML-RPC interface. It doesn't have a direct link from the home page. I think someday someone will, finally, get irritated and fix that but doubtful. But the post interface is easier than the XML-RPC. Advogato's interface is nice and simple. But lj does have more features.

Client
Well it works now. I broke down and wrote it in perl. I retrofitted the lj client. The basic functionality is what I wanted so I just ripped out the lj specific stuff and stuck in XML-RPC with advogato info. Lj has an XML-RPC interface. I am sure I can do something to remove the dependencies. Unfortunately XMLRPC::Lite has a poor error handling interface. When an error occurs its hard to tell what it is, much less recover.

The upside to the reuse is I get my editor, spell checking, postponing and offline all for free. Free meaning 6 hours.

testing

I've been trying to get my client code to work. The previous entries were tests. It worked except the xmlrpc library returned an error to my client. Since scheme is new to me I'm having difficult debuging it. The XML-RPC scheme interface is too cool. I refuse to use the perl library. The ocaml might be interesting. Does modula-3 have one? have to look it up later.

This is my first entry. Testing the client code. Does it handle & ampersands ok?

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
