Some new plugins, XFN, Technorati and yigg.de //at 02:09 //by abe

from the web-2.0 dept.

After blathijs and I today talked a little bit about blosxom plugins on the #blosxom IRC channel, I installed the listplugins plugin. Since I’m a perfectionist in some things, I had to configure it to link every plugin I use to it’s web page or source.

While going through my plugin list, I noticed that there were three additional plugins I wrote myself and of which I thought I should share:

  • acronyms works similar to and is losely based on Fletcher Penney’s autolinks but instead of setting links it marks configurable keywords as abbreviation or acronym and show their expansion when hovering over the keyword (all using standard XHTML).
  • xml_ping_generic is based on xml_ping_weblogs and can ping an arbitrary number of URLs to be pinged with the weblog.com’s XML RPC ping API. By default it pings weblogs.com and technorati.com.
  • date_rfc822 is nothing else than the 822-date command (which returns a date in RFC 822 conform format and is written in Perl, too) wrapped into a blosxom plugin. Work similar to date_fullname. I use it for including <pubDate> tags in the RDF.

All plugins are published under the same open source license, they initially came with.

In other news…
I started using XFN, the XHTML Friends Network, at least the blogroll, and created accounts at Technorati and at yigg.de, a German Digg.com clone formerly respective yet still known as digg.de

I think plugins should supply that information themselves. That is, we should define a general interface through which plugins supply their version, homepage, author and perhaps even changelogs dynamically. That would rock :-)

You're right. I just wonder if a sub based API or a variables based API would make more sense, e.g. to use 'sub version { "3.1415926535" }' or '$version = "3.1415926535";'?

hi there,you really did great on this site,i really enjoy to see how far you can push blosxom to go.I'm still in the early stage to use blosxom and had problem with technorati ping. after I pinged,I got "You just sent a ping, please only ping when you update" in .ping.output file.And I know it had little to do with your plugin since it does ping out.what do you think technorati's behavior?

Hackergotchi of Axel Beckert

About...

This is the blog or weblog of Axel Stefan Beckert (aka abe or XTaran) who thought, he would never start blogging... (He also once thought, that there is no reason to switch to this new ugly Netscape thing because Mosaïc works fine. That was about 1996.) Well, times change...

He was born 1975 at Villingen-Schwenningen, made his Abitur at Schwäbisch Hall, studied Computer Science with minor Biology at University of Saarland at Saarbrücken (Germany) and now lives in Zürich (Switzerland), working at the IT Support Group (ISG) of the Departement of Physics at ETH Zurich.
