New Xpostulate release in the works

Okay, I just pushed new code for Xpostulate to github with the following changes:


  • removed iziblog, scribbld, inksome (spam SEO havens anyway)

  • removed twitter until I can get oauth working

  • added support for custom wordpress installations

  • added support for posting to friendika with bbcode insertions

  • changed identi.ca feature to support any status.net installation.

  • also, various pertinent alterations to gui, of course


all in ONE DAY! because I F--KING ROCK!

I have NOT updated the win/lin installers on the main Xpostulate page, yet.
I have to play with installjammer and get those worked up again, and will probably give a day or two for this new code to be tested,
since, it seems, I now have a contributor on the project who seems willing to test and prod this code.

Still to do:

  • I really, really want a button to click to automagically translate bbcode to html or vice-versa.

  • That I can do, but need time.

  • Get oauth working for twitter...maybe

  • add support for blogger

  • change the LJ, IJ, DJ, DW to be simple moveabletype, with multiple options, rather than hardwired for 4 different sites, so, say, if you only use LJ and DW, you don't have DJ and IJ cluttering your interface, or, even, if you have multiple LJ accts (I do, one for my art, other for hackery), you can do that, etc.



Now, I really must get back to translating these Brazilian pharma regulations.

custom wordpress posting

I have now successfully posted to my own wordpress installation at baldwinsoftware.com/blog (see this post), using Xpostulate

Lotso progress this weekend.
I need to figure out why scribbld and iziblog are refusing xmlrpc posts.
It would be better if all blogs were using the same method, rather than some accepting xmlrpc, and others using flat posting.
That's high on my priority list, at the moment.

Also, I will write in the means for YOU (dear user) to use Xpostulate with your custom wordpress installation, as I have just done with mine (wordpress posting in the currently released version is only to wordpress.com, but since I am now successfully posting to my custom install, shortly you will have the same option).

Then, of course, as previously mentioned various times, I will be implementing blogger functions, hopefully.

Xpostulate updates

Okay...

In the past 24 hours I have successfully implemented xmlrpc posting for LJ, IJ and DW, as already mentioned.

I have added posting to Scribbld.net and Inksome.com, as well,
And, I have successfully posted to my WordPress.

It seems I will be posting a new zip shortly to the Xpostulate page with support for these features.

There' still plenty of work to be done, such as tweaking and configuring the interface, adding more features (especially support for blogger api), etc.

Nonetheless, I'm satisfied enough with what's been done so far, I'm finally going to take Xpostulate from v. 0.1 to v. 0.2
Big step!

:)

I'll call it v1.0 when it has blogger support and can download prior entries for editing.
I believe I've mentioned this, but I don't, at least at this juncture, foresee myself adding stuff like friend management, etc...but who knows...Maybe for version 2.0?

WordPress = SUCCESS

As can be seen here:
FIRST WORDPRESS POST WITH XPOSTULATE

I have now successfully posted to a wordpress blog using Xpostulate.

I'm pretty psyched about that.

I haven't uploaded a new zip with the xmlrpc features just yet, but within days, possibly before the weekend is out, you will have an Xpostulate that posts to LJ, IJ, DJ, DW, Iz and Wordpress at your disposal.
Still tweaking a few things.

xmlrpc posting with Xpostulate

Okay...I've started to hack up the xmlrpc functions.
First, I had to replace all "<" and ">" in html tags in a post with "&lt;" and "&gt;",
and then, I have basically just handwritten out a relevant xml file.
Which looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?><methodCall><methodName>LJ.XMLRPC.postevent</methodName><params><param><value><struct><member><name>username</name><value><string>tonytraductor</string></value></member><member><name>password</name><value><string>XXXXXXXX</string></value></member><member><name>subject</name><value><string>xmlrpc posting</string></value></member><member><name>lineendings</name><value><string>pc</string><value></member><member><name>year</name><value><int>2010</int></value></member><member><name>mon</name><value><int>04</int></value></member><member><name>day</name><value><int>06</int></value></member><member><name>hour</name><value><int>10</int></value></member><member><name>min</name><value><int>46</int></value></member><member><name>prop_current_location</name><value><string>127.0.0.1</string></value></member><member><name>propr_current_mood</name><value><string>focused</string></value></member><member><name>prop_taglist</name><value><string>xmlrpc, xpostulate, wordpress, livejournal, dreamwidth, insanejournal</string></value></member><member><name>prop_currentmusic</name><value><string>none</string></value></member><member><name>userjournal</name><value><string>which journal?</string></value></member><member><name>event</name><value><string>Okay...I've started to hack up the xmlrpc functions.

</string></value></member></struct></value></param></params></methodCall>


What I haven't done is tried to send such a file to a server, yet...
I'm not sure if the posting method has to be different from a flat post, in terms of simply sending this file as the post data...
More work...
But, hey, I'm working on it!
