LiveJournal Client Discussions
I've just released Charm 1.3.0. If you're looking for a console-based,
all-text client that's still full-featured, check it out. It's written
in Python, so it's cross-platform; in particular, however, it's part
of most Linux distributions, so while it's not as commonplace a language
as perl, chances are that you've probably got in on your Linux box.
Of particular note in this version are four new features:
- Charm now has a "quick" mode, where you can post entirely from the
command line, rather than going through the menu tree. Thus, you can
use Charm as a filter to pipe things into, whether it's the output of
Jive or using it as a backend for a mail-to-LiveJournal gateway.
- Charm now has a mass-archival mode, that downloads and saves your
journal posts between a specified pair of dates.
- Charm's friend-checking modes now supports checking specific friend
- Config files can include other config files, so making multiple profiles
for posting to non-LiveJournal sites is easier.
You can get Charm, more documentation, and the detailed list of changes
from the Charm home page.
