Phillip Pearson - web + electronics notes

tech notes and web hackery from a new zealander who was vaguely useful on the web back in 2002 (see: python community server, the blogging ecosystem, the new zealand coffee review, the internet topic exchange).


Blogging clients and PeopleAggregator

PeopleAggregator supports a reasonable amount of the metaWeblog API (scroll down for the metaWeblog.* and blogger.* methods) as well as RSD (example), although it seems that this isn't quite enough for most editing tools. I think I must have done something wrong with the RSD, too, as nothing seems to be able to figure out my blog settings from my profile URL and RSD document.

Here's a rundown of what I've tested so far:

Performancing - fails to autodetect blog settings, but after manual configuration, retrieves list of blogs and publishes a post just fine.

Qumana - claims to be unable to autodetect blog settings but successfully parses the XML-RPC endpoint out of the RSD document. Retrieves list of blogs and publishes a posts without any trouble. Fails to retrieve posts from the server.

Working on getting them to work properly at the moment... stay tuned for more updates.
