Comments via XMLRPC? [Nov. 3rd, 2005|04:17 pm]

Hi. I've been trying to figure out how to read comments to postings using the LJ XMLRPC. I just can't figure it out. Does anybody have sample code?

Right now I'm trying to grab the URL and parsing it. That works most of the time, but it doesn't work with comments to entries that are friends-only. When I hit one of those, I throw up my hands .I know that there is a way to send through the LJ Cookie ,but I can't figure out how to make that, either.

So help on either would be very much appreciated!

updates to XMLRPC download

Hi. Since you commented on my posting last, it seems that there is now an XML way to download comments. It's documented at:

http://www.livejournal.com/developer/exporting.bml

(I found this out when I was screen-scraping; there is now a little comment in the code telling you not to screen-scrape.)

But I can't find an XMLRPC interface for the export_comments feature. Do you know how to do it or where the doc is?

Re: updates to XMLRPC download

Hello,

I have this funny feeling that I've seen this page before... *coughcough*

There isn't an XMLRPC way to do this--yet! Care to make one?

Re: updates to XMLRPC download

I don't know how to make an XMLRPC server for the livejournal.com webserver....

But I am now making the cookie automatically, rather than stealing a cookie using tcpdump...

Re: updates to XMLRPC download

LJcode.org might be helpful... but that's a pretty big task, isn't it?
