Eric Gaumer and Ted Leung continue to be my main support in getting up to speed with blogging in general and PyBlosxom in particular. Thanks, guys. Always easier to go a-hacking when you have fellow hackers in the trenches with you.
So Eric's entry was a nudge to finally get MetaWebLog going on Copia. First of all, I applied his patch to BloGTK. Then I set up
xmlrpc_metaweblog.py. But first I had to update it to follow my convention of storing entries within directories for each date. If anyone else would like to go with that convention, you might want to check out my custom version of
xmlrpc_metaweblog.py, linked above.
I'll specify a trackback when posting, to see if it does the trick. I'll post a comment with the apparent results.
But first of all, I'll save my blog entry to a local file. I'll be doing that a lot while using BloGTK. It has exhibited a few weird, not-obviously-reproducible quirks from time to time that worry me a bit. Unfortunately, the author has apparently abandoned the 1.1. branch in favor of BloGTK2, so I guess there will be some more hacking to do. Lucky thing I know Python. Even luckier thing Eric's learning Python so rapidly. At least the BloGTK2 preview looks cleaner. I'll look forward to it.
