LJSM: Livejournal backup tool [Dec. 21st, 2003|11:33 pm]
LiveJournal Client Discussions



I've written Livejournal backup tool, LJSM.
It saves posts with comments, memories and graphics of any user. Converts relative links to absolute. Creates contents page, supports http proxy.

There are two companion tools:
ljpms -- script for batch posts manipulation
allin1 -- script for joining posts downloaded by ljsm into one file in reverse chronological order

Howdy. This is a great program. Thanks!

I haven't used it in a while and now I get the error:
"got login page http://www.livejournal.com/login.bml but found no login form on it."

Is there a problem on my end or has livejournal changed their login page so that LJSM doesn't work anymore?

I'm seeing the same problem, and it is the result of a change on LJ. Looking at it quickly it appears that ljsm is failing on the login because the login form is no longer the first <form> on the page and the login subroutine is only testing the first form it finds.

Don't do it.
I've changed lj_login function and now it uses 'sessiongenerate' call of LJ client protocol.
See http://www.offtopia.net/ljsm/index_en.html for download links.

I've deleted my hack so it won't get used. Using the sessiongenerate call of the LJ protocol is definitely the better way to go.
