Re: [request] iPhone & Txp: a killer application

I think utilising the XML-RPC server is the better way to go.

As mentioned earlier in this thread, however, the TXP XML-RPC server currently doesn’t support image uploads. Maybe adding this, via metaWeblog.newMediaObject, would be a more worthwhile endeavour?

This would be great on the iPhone where file/image uploads aren’t possible in the web browser.

Maybe jQTouch can be of help building a iPhone/TXP combo?

Nope. It would require a rewrite of the entire textpattern admin. The best option is to use XML-RPC with a the native cocoa interface. Most of the code is already written in the wordpress application. Just rewrite that to work with TXP and you’re golden.

Re: [request] iPhone & Txp: a killer application

Sure, are you volunteering your time? Implementing that would require an enormous rewrite and wouldn’t provide an ideal solution. Seriously, read above, the xml-rpc solution is best. Use the code provided on the wordpress site for their iPhone app and most of the work would be done for you.

Re: [request] iPhone & Txp: a killer application

After using this thread as inspiration… I developed NAPHONE an admin side theme for iPhone. The theme utilizes the jqtouch css to achieve a native look (and soon a native feel with javascript). It also cleans up some of the oddball field widths textpattern has. Check it out on the forum or download it at neverarriving.com/naphone

Tell me what you think and test away!

Re: [request] iPhone & Txp: a killer application

Since the iPad just launched in Europe, I’m bumping this thread. I am just a regular user and I don’t know how difficult it is to do… but I would sure pay for an application for writing and uploading images on the iPad. Is anyone working on anything like this?

Re: [request] iPhone & Txp: a killer application

bump away! i would love to be able to upload images to textpattern easier from my iphone too. as for writing – with the iPad i’m sure that the normal admin interface isn’t too bad on there though.

Re: [request] iPhone & Txp: a killer application

Yes, writing is fine, but uploading images isn’t. It’s also really nice the way the WordPress app keeps local drafts. But I guess Textpattern devs are already aware of this. If it’s as “easy” as “just” rewriting the Wordpress app, then I’m surprised that it hasn’t been done already. Perhaps the userbase of Wordpress is exponentially larger.

Re: [request] iPhone & Txp: a killer application

That’s the bit that’s really pulling me towards using WP for an uncoming project – the ability to add images quickly and easily using a iPhone or Android app (a client specific request).

I don’t want to move away from TXP, but this worries me (slightly) that with new technologies and platforms coming forward will TXP stand at this current point, or will it be able to roll forward. Maybe with the next ‘big’ release it’ll quash those fears.
