More Blogger API shenanigans

Ok, so ed­it­Post, which _is_ in the 1.0 API does­n't work. I am ob­vi­ous­ly us­ing the wrong API ref­er­ence. Any­way, the plug­in work­s, ex­cept you can't ed­it stuff that's al­ready post­ed. Up­load­ed to CVS and ev­ery­thing.

Blogger API sucks

Or I am miss­ing some­thing. I mean:

  • No way to list the post­s?

  • No way to fetch a post tex­t?

So, if you mi­grate to an­oth­er serv­er... you are screwed? If you lose your clien­t's lo­cal ver­sion, you are screwed?

Well, at least it's easy to write ;-)

I opened a blogspot ac­count to test:

Code cleanup

I did some small code cleanup in bartle­blog, the ad­voga­to plug­in now works ok, I will start work in a blog­ger plug­in.

Af­ter that:

  • A semi-de­­cent ed­i­­tor. Maybe HT­M­L, maybe struc­­tured-­­tex­t, who knows

  • GUI cleanup and pret­ti­­fy­­ca­­tion

  • Plug­ins for a few more PyDS tools

  • Pub­­lic an­­nouce­­men­t? Who knows.

Stuff distros don't include

For dif­fer­ent clients, I am hav­ing to in­stall pro­grams that for some rea­son dis­tros don't in­clude.

Couri­er-imap, a dozen perl mod­ules, ne­tatalk... why aren't they in Red Hat or oth­er main­stream dis­tros? Sure, De­bian has them, but I don't like De­bian.

Oh, well. They are easy to rp­m-ize, so I just do it my­self. But then I have no place to put them so oth­ers can use it.

Does it mean I should be­come part of some­thing like fe­do­ra or some­such? I don't want to main­tain them forever!
