Re: XML-RPC for Textpattern 4.0 - test release

Here’s an issue I have with Flickr: the paragraphs I post with an image get separated by three break tags. When I dump the same template into an account configured for a Blogger weblog and post from Flickr to that weblog, I only get two break tags betweeen paragraphs.

I’d settle for two break tags instead of proper paragraphing, but three break tags is a bit much.

The TxP site has Textile turned on.

Re: XML-RPC for Textpattern 4.0 - test release

The {description} tag in Flickr’s Blog This template pulls in whatever text is dispatched with the Flickr photo. It doesn’t matter if I set Textpattern to “use Textile”, “convert linebreaks” or “leave text untouched”, I always get a barrage of four break tags between paragraphs. (I miscounted them earlier — they’ve always been four rather than three. )

Re: XML-RPC for Textpattern 4.0 - test release

I wrote a custom template at flickr to post the photo into textpattern, and it looks something like this:

<pre><code>
p.

uploaded by name

description
</code></pre>

That fixed the problem to me, but I agree that there was a little weirdness in the handling of textile after posting from flickr.

Sorry to hijack the thread, but XRT version 2 will be released very soon.

Re: XML-RPC for Textpattern 4.0 - test release

Wait — when Kurt said he updated your plugin, I just assumed you had abandoned it and he’d taken over. Are you saying there are going to be two competing XML-RPC plugins, based on the same code, doing the same thing?

Re: XML-RPC for Textpattern 4.0 - test release

Okay, I’ll fess up. I didn’t exactly coordinate with Chris before releasing my updated version. I saw a lot of people struggling to get XML-RPC to work under TXP 4.0.0, and I also saw that a few small changes could get things running relatively well, so I put my changes together and released it as an updated version of XRT. Chris, if I’ve stepped on your toes here, I’m sorry—of course I left proper attribution in the code, but I did refer to my version as an update to XRT, and I can see how that could cause confusion.

So, that’s that. Moving forward, though, Dean contacted me a while back about rolling XML-RPC into Textpattern itself, and also indicated that Pedro has been working on XML-RPC support of his own. I don’t think it would be smart for Textpattern to end up with three XML-RPC interfaces, so I think at this point the best we can do is get everything in the open and try and merge things back and forth until we get something which works as well as possible. There are definitely weaknesses in my code, and while I can’t speak to XRT 2 or any other as-yet-unreleased code, I think Textpattern as a whole would benefit from mature XML-RPC support based around the code which has been written thus far.

Re: XML-RPC for Textpattern 4.0 - test release

Don’t worry – no toe-stepping done! I’d not looked at XRT in months and it was only in the last few days that I coded v2, as I had a few ideas to get around the short-comings of the old version. XRT2 (or “Telegraf” as I’ve started to call it) rocks a big fat one all over XRT1’s candy-ass.

I do agree there’s no point in 3 people releasing 3 different versions of what will be basically the same thing. I think this might be a good time for a developer to step in and tell us what their plan for XML-RPC in textpattern is.

Re: XML-RPC for Textpattern 4.0 - test release

Once upon a roadmap, it said that native XML-RPC support was scheduled for TxP 1.1…
