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!

I wrote one of these. Haven't seen any evidence that others exist. There's a post somewhere on this community announcing mine, but I'm too lazy to look.

Anyway, it's written in perl, on the theory that many wonderful modules exist just waiting to be glued together.

The journal's name is noisetube, and the bot's named 'tacosapien.'

I tried posting... it was funny cause I shared the post with someone else. I also downloaded the code, but couldn't get it running because of perl dependencies. Haven't really gotten a handle on that yet. Maybe there's an easier way than how I was doing it.
