Just a question. [Feb. 8th, 2002|09:24 am]

I'm thinking about developing both C# and MIDP LJ Clients. Would anybody be interested in seeing those developed? Is anyone else working on such projects?

I haven't seen it done before, but why hasn't there been a client that encapsulates all features of LJ (including comments posting) there doesn't seem to be a "post/read-comments" defined in the protocol list (I've only browsed it very quickly).

Basically I was intending on programing a complete interface to LJ; ie remove the web-browser interface; just a simple client that keeps a backup of everything you post, everything your friends post, and comments written to/replied when needed. My thoughts were basically to decrease bandwidth usage on LJ's server side, which could in turn speed things up for everyone. It also helps a great deal if I can get raw data when writing the MIDP client, and could also provide for some nice stats on the user end of things :)

~shrugs~ just a thought though ^_^

ljsh: Interactive shell for access to a LiveJournal admin console [Feb. 8th, 2002|03:32 pm]

DESCRIPTION

This program will provide you with a shell from which LiveJournal admin console commands can be executed.

At minumum you must specify the user to connect as. With no other options, the program will prompt for a password and then connect to port 80 of www.livejournal.com and attempt to authenticate with the login protocol mode before giving a prompt from which admin console commands can be executed.

A command and its arguments can be given on the command line to make ljsh run in non-interactive mode and just execute that one command, output the result and exit.

SYNOPSIS
ljsh [options] user[@server] [command [args]]
 Options:
   --port=number     choose the port number to connect on (default 80)
   --interface=path  path to the protocol interface (default /interface/flat)
   --password=string password to use to authenticate
OPTIONS
--port
The port number to connect on. The default is the standard HTTP port, port 80.
--interface
The path to the protocol interface. The default is the standard flat handler, at /interface/flat.
--password
The password to use for authentication with the LiveJournal server. Normally this will be prompted for, but you can use this if running ljsh from a script or other non-interactive environment and are specifying a command on the command line.

  • Term::ReadPassword
  • Getopt::Long
