|algae: a livejournal client for aim.

LiveJournal Client Discussions
Using off-the-shelf perl modules, i've thrown together an lj client for aim. It acts as an aim bot and posts any messages it gets to an lj account. All the requirements are stated at the top. To run it, copy it over to your web server, set some variables within the file to appropriate values, and execute. Make sure you have the required perl modules (listed at the top.)|
Get the script at http://iannet.net/lj/algae.pl . The test journal is noisetube.
Note that perl is not my native language. The code, put baldly, sucks, and there isn't very much functionality. This is just a proof-of-concept. I plan on adding error handling, more generalised image support, an external config file. . . stuff like that. I also want it to say meaningful things to the user.
Of course, I'd rather not have to turn it into an actual program at all. It sounds like work. If anyone's written a better aim->lj bridge, I would love to hear about it. My web searches didn't turn up anything.
