Read blogs [Aug. 15th, 2007|01:49 am]
LiveJournal Client Discussions
I want write a program that will read livejournal blogs. I found this doc http://www.livejournal.com/doc/server/ljp.csp.xml-rpc.getevents.html, but it says that user must log in to read blogs, that is, user must have an account. So... Is there any way to read blogs without logging?

All LJ blogs have RSS feeds.

What about if you want to read the blog from say a php script, but you want to go further back in the past? I want to do that for example so I can display all my public posts that are tagged with "frontpage" on the front page of my site. Same with a couple other tags, while still having the rest of my journal entries hosted together on livejournal. I could cross post via some client, or setup a community for each of the separate tags, and then just parse the rss feeds for those communities, but that seems odd to me. I'd be happy with a method to access an rss feed for a specific tag or combination of tags, but the more I look the more it seems like the tag browser page of my journal is simply not exposed in the public api's because tags were implemented later.

Any thoughts? I may end up having to give up on avoiding explicit, static cross-posting, and have what I want to do with tags be a personal site, downloading all my journal entries, and comments, and use some cross-posting client to put those entries I want in my friends' feed back on livejournal.
