Jabber LJ_Bot client feature request - gmail interface! [Jul. 10th, 2007|03:55 pm]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


So I don't quite know if this should be posted here or if this should be posted in lj_dev, so sorry if it's wrong.

I don't quite know how the lj_bot is implemented and how neccessary it is to run on it's own server, however, it would seem to me that if we could provide a setting in our lj profiles for a gchat id, then if the lj_bot were to connect to gchat, it could verify that setting, and authenticate a gmail user as the equivalent lj_user and implement all the same functionality it already has. I'd love to be able to make posts from my gmail account on the run.

[Mid Writing Edit] It looks like you can add Frank to your gmail buddylist, you just: [16:06:41] LJ Bot (Frank) (bot): Can't post from non-LiveJournal Jabber addresses yet. [/Mid Writing Edit]

Is there any update on the schedule for this feature?

Actually, that syntax could actually solve the problem across the board. Require @journal_name@ for every foreign jabber post, and then that simplifies the search, because the server just needs to look up that specific journal and check it's settings... since you can't currently use jabber to post to communities, it's not even a problem for those! If you want to enable community support you can just fallback to the other behavior I described, it would be slower, but workable nonetheless.

Yes, you need to take this to ljdev. They don't read this community.

Sadly enough, my post was too verbose or something, because it was not passed through moderation to appear on the lj_dev page. I didn't get any reason for it, but now it's been a solid 2 weeks and some and in the meantime several new entries have been posted. What should I do, give up?
