Blogger API

2002-03-05 20:09:48+00 by Dan Lyke 7 comments

Okay, I've got something that kinda might sorta work. If any of y'all are XML-RPC weenies, try http://www.flutterby.com/RPC2 for a limited implementation of the Blogger API. It isn't yet working with Mark Hershberger's Emacs client, I'm not yet sure what I'm screwing up on that, and you can only post to one comment so far (because I need to figure out how to not give you 5,000 available 'blogs), but if I can get some feedback on this process then we can get this ironed out.

Dan, it appears to work with blogger.el if you `(setq blogger-id "entry4668")' and then `C-c b s' to start a new entry. However, I can't seem to list out the other comments in the entry. Thatis, blogger-list-messages doesn't seem to like how you've implemented blogger.getRecentPosts

Sorry I took so long to test this.

Oh, "join the discussion" link on your your perma-link pages seems broke.

Any chance you can track the blogger.getRecentPosts thing a bit? I don't know what I'm returning that you wouldn't like. Thanks for the testing so far!

I'll check out the perma-link pages...

Well, fault handling with xml-rpc.el sucks, but I managed to grab the following:

<?xml version="1.0"?> <methodResponse> <fault> <value><struct> <member><name>faultString</name><value><string>Unknown method blogger.getRecentPosts</string></value></member> <member><name>faultCode</name><value><i4>7</i4></value></member> </struct></value> </fault> </methodResponse>

Doh. I didn't mean "getRecentPosts", I meant whatever the active blogs call is. I'll try to take a more reasoned look at this this evening.

Ow. I didn't implement "blogger.getRecentPosts" because it isn't on http://plant.blogger.com/api/
