Re: XML-RPC for Textpattern - version 1.0 released

I too am curious as to the benefits of using XMLRPC.

I am about to start work on a site that hopefully will be maintained by the client instead of me, for basically adding news clips and editing current pages (contently only).

Would XMLRPC have any benefit here? How does it work for editing pages that already exist?

I would be looking for Windows based solutions if that helps. Thanks!

Re: XML-RPC for Textpattern - version 1.0 released

First, THANKS chrismc!

Here are some of the programs that use XML-RPC to post:
Windows:
SharpMT
w.bloggar
zempt
Mac:
ecto
marsedit
Linix:
BloGTK
Gnome Blog Applet

(please, anyone else have more to add, I’m blanking here)

Some of the benefits are:
-being able to compose entries offline, then posting them when you are online or just at a later time.
-saving drafts on your system, whether posted immediately or later
-posting via email (big one here)
which can be done from cellphones, pda’s and other devices.

Those are just some thoughts I have to add to the mix.

And have I said THANKS chrismc!?

p.s. thanks fredb7, I knew there was another one for mac, just couldn’t grab it.

Re: XML-RPC for Textpattern - version 1.0 released

Nice! Thanks.
Eveything text-related works fine so far.

A question:
Is there a way to upload images with MarsEdit/Ecto, etc. ?
Am I missing something or is this not supported?

P.S: starzabove, you can add MarsEdit on mac.

Re: XML-RPC for Textpattern - version 1.0 released

I get a “412 Precondition Failed” error. What does this mean?

Re: XML-RPC for Textpattern - version 1.0 released

@Fredb7 – it’s not possible using the MetaWeblog API method for uploading media files. I had a heap of trouble getting it to even consider working. It’s on the “todo” list for the future. Some clients support FTP uploads – perhaps that’s an option for you?

@Etz Haim – no idea, I can’t say I’ve ever seen that error before. What client are you using? PHP version? Server type, etc?

@Starzabove – Linux has BloGTK and the Gnome Blog Applet (which uses the Blogger API, IIRC, so won’t work with XRT)

Re: XML-RPC for Textpattern - version 1.0 released

My client is JustBlogIt (Firefox extension).

My PHP version is 5.0.3 (Zend Engine v2.0.3) with Zend Extension Manager v1.0.6 and Zend Optimizer v2.5.7, and it is used with mod_php and Apache 2.0.latest.

In a few of words: I’m hosted on TextDrive.

Re: XML-RPC for Textpattern - version 1.0 released

So it sounds like XMLRPC is pretty cool.

Now here’s a question, can one of those programs, like w.bloggar be able to update/maintain content that really exists?

Might be easier for my client to use a program like that to maintain content instead of having to log in and goto the section and article and what not. Or maybe that is the easiest way (which is still not hard by any means and much easier than their current setup). Thanks!

Re: XML-RPC for Textpattern - version 1.0 released

Yes, it can be used to edit content that already exists :)
