Revision r1.8 - 06 Mar 2004 - 22:07 GMT - TWikiGuestBlosxom?, I use this to make quick blogging from links added to a toolbar bookmarks folder. The usage is simple: Hit Cmd-D, edit the bookmark title to add a comment, hit return. I can lazily link-blog in under 5 seconds, including a witty quip about the link in question. The only thing that slows me down is when, occasionally, I need to reselect the link-blog bookmark folder if I've recently made a bookmark elsewhere. If I don't feel like editing the title, I can just drag & drop the link straight from the address bar into a toolbar bookmark folder. Previously, this was written in Java. However, I've rewritten this in Python, using 4Suite and Cheetah. Why? Because I could, in part, and because this new version is a bit simpler to maintain and run.

python bin/bmblogger.pyRunning this program should result in a new single entry in the Blosxom category whose filename is based on the current time, listing all new links added to the bookmarks folder since the last time the command was run. ShareAndEnjoy!
