Non-LJ-Specific Client [Jan. 5th, 2007|02:05 pm]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


I'm looking for a unix client that can post to someplace other than livejournal.com. I'm aware that downloading and recompiling the source and pointing to something other than lj.com is dirt easy, but many of my less technical friends would disagree. I use logjam, but cant see any way to post to anything other than LJ proper, and my vague memory of windows clients mirrors this.

Also, I'd like to see a client that uses the old flat interface (v. XML-RPC and Blogger api), but that seems pretty unpopular these days. If anyone knows a client -- for any platform -- that uses the flat interfaces, it would save me some enormous development time.

many thanks,

[edit:] challenge mechanism for login would also be very nice!

LogJam has about 80% of the code written for supporting the Blogger API.

LogJam also uses the flat interface.

lj.net appears to fulfil most of these requirements. i will attempt running it in mono/unix, although the packaging is all windows specific (setup.exe, setup.msi, &c &c... sorry, but: ew)

Curious question

Why a client using the flat interface? I'm just curious, because I would've thought that the client would make which backend interface it uses fairly irrelevant.

Ooooh, dev time! I get it now, sorry, didn't read well enough!

HideJournal uses the flat protocol.

It's not clear, but you seem to be asking for a client that can be configured to talk to other servers running the LJ software besides livejournal.com...

If so, "Deepest Sender" is a Firefox extension that permits entering the API URL in it's prefs. It's pretty good even if it isn't standalone.

My ljKlient is supposed to be non-LJ.com-specific, but as I have no DJ or other LJ-flat site account, I cannot test it. Would you like to give it a spin?

KLuJe uses the flat interface. It has a dialog box, where you can insert a URL, for posting to other sites that use the opensource LiveJournal code (such as DeadJournal.com).
