introduction and a question [Apr. 2nd, 2004|04:11 pm]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


Hello all.

New member here. I found this group while looking for a php interface to livejournal. I was planning on building one so that I can easily syndicate my main weblog to livejournal whenever I update the main weblog. I got tired long ago of copy/pasting to update both, and my content on LJ has suffered because of it

Before I get started developing a tool, I wanted to see what else is out there. I'm basically looking for something to accept user, password, subject, event and possibly mood and music that will create a post on lj. I would include this in my cms application to update livejournal whenever I update the weblog. My weblog is home-rolled, so I'm not looking for any sort of MT or Blogger plugin.

I haven't gone through all of the archives yet, just the most recent pages, and I haven't seen anything that jumped right out at me.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

You *could* use the flat interface, but it's going to be a lot more complex. You'll have to do raw requests and parse them blah blah blah. XML-RPC is the future.

One thing I remembered after I made my comment is that there are existing pure-PHP XML-RPC implementations... that is, classes you can use that don't require the extension. It's likely better to try to get your host to set it up for you, though.

I believe http://phpxmlrpc.sourceforge.net/ is one such implementation. There are others, I'm sure, and this one may not be the best, it's just the first I found from casual googling.
