AIM<-->LJ Interface [May. 30th, 2005|03:56 am]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


[mood |excitedexcited]

I'm interested in making an AIM interface to LiveJournal. It would most likely be an AIM bot which you would IM posts to. The bot would run on someone's server... mine right now. (eventually LiveJournal's?)

Has anything like this been done before? If so, please let me know.

I'm interested in using PHP, Java, and MySQL. Joscar seems to be a good AIM library for Java. Does anyone know of a good Java - MySQL library? Is JDBC good?

Any suggestions, comments, etc will be appreciated!

Forget java and go python. I already wrote my own python aim client that talks to mysql servers...and I already wrote my own lj client in php...so, i'll gladly help you along.

Thanks for the offer of help.

I would actually like to learn python. Coding without braces gives me shivers.... in a good way. Any reason to go python over java other than speed and more non-profit-ness? One interesting reason to go Java is that more people have it installed on their system. They would be able to install the bot easier.

Does python has a good OSCAR interface? As good as Joscar? I'm not up for trying to figure out the OSCAR protocal... libraries are good. ;) Reason I need OSCAR: I'm thinking about encorporating away messages. With TOC you can't get away messages without messaging the person.

A live journal php client would be the easy part I think. I'm assuming you used XML-RPC. Or no?
