Second klog post ever

Ok, klog is just a tem­po­rary name, but it's 4AM, and I am not cre­ative. So, what is it? It's a PyQT client to PyD­S.

Look at the pic­ture in the link, if you wan­t!

Now, I am not sure if I will work on it much, since I on­ly did it to learn a bit about XML­R­PC, but it DOES work, or else, you won't be able to read this any­way ;-)

Ra­tio­nale: While PyDS is a great piece of work, edit­ing text through a web page feels like scratch­ing wear­ing gloves. It is doable, but it's not sat­is­fy­ing. So, I tried this just to see how hard it would be... an­swer: not very hard, re­al­ly.

Just to keep me hon­est, and keep the soft­ware some­what de­signed in­stead of piled, I am do­ing a ad­voga­to mod­ule that re­places the PyDS one (of course with much less func­tion­al­i­ty).

Cool! Did you use the MetaWeblogAPI or BloggerAPI, or did you use the PyDS native API?

Roberto Alsina / 2006-04-03 05:01:

Georg: I used PyDS API, I think (what's on /RPC2/weblog)

Taj: you know me, I am not precisely a steady fellow. I am blogging now because I have free time. I have free time, because I have money. When either of those runs out, blogging suffers ;-)

I hadn't heard of pyblosxom before! Reading the web page, I still don't understand how it works, either.

I mean, what interface do you have? Just editing files as in bloxsom?

hi roberto, I'm wondering whether you tried pyblosxom and what you thought of it in

comparison with PyDS.

(btw nice to see you blogging again, I had almost given up! ;-)
