This is a progress report on the connection between the OPML Editor and wordpress.com.
First, as you can see from this screen shot, I am using the editor to write this post. That’s a good sign.
It’s quite primitive, note that I have to enter the HTML code to start a new paragraph. But the basic connection is there, using the Metaweblog API, and the next steps will be adding new features to make things a bit more automatic, and perhaps easier to set up.
Note that I’ve got a special icon for a WordPress post. It’s pretty ugly. I stole it from another nodetype. If there are any good icon designers out there, start thinking about what a good icon for WordPress might look like.
Also, this same approach will work for all blogging tools. But since both WP and the OPML Editor are GPL apps, I want to work on the connection between the two. (Also because Matt M likes spicy noodles.)
PS: The tool is working so well I thought I’d release the source.
