Getting Memories list from client software? [Mar. 28th, 2005|02:20 pm]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


I'm considering ways to embed my LJ entries into a bigger personal website, listed by topic (Memories keyword). Basically I'd be looking at the LJ entries as a simple content repository, with my website acting as a client to that. I'm only concerned with public entries at the moment, not requiring authentication.

But - there doesn't appear to be a Memories api in the protocol document. It shows that I could access the friend list, and add a new entry or bring up an existing one by date, but getting the list of Memories doesn't appear to be a listed feature. I'd like to bring up a list of existing entries based on finding them in the Memories list, and then allow the user to choose them to view.

Am I out of luck (memories client api's are not provided), or am I just looking in the wrong place?

There are no memory APIs at this time. It hasn't really been a priority, and the whole memory system needs a bit of an overhaul to better enable access. (It's big and bloated and slow, and adding an API would just trash it pretty badly, IMHO.)

If this is something only for your journal, you could easily scrape the memories page for your journal once a day... and build the links from that...

look up lj's rules for bots it seems to me that this would be a small job.
