Simple Drupal Blog Poster (ruby xmlrpc)
After yesterday’s struggle getting ruby 1.8.5 to do a post with drupal, today i quickly put together a simple drupal poster. It posts a new post, and can update the same.
Its a Simple poster in the sense that it takes a file in the following minimal format:
first line is subject
rest is content.
In the case of editing (updating a post), first line must be POSTID: <postid>.
That’s it — no categories etc.
For a full-fledged drupal/MT poster, please use mtsend.py. If you are having problems with ruby and drupal, pls see the previous post. A minor change or 2 is required in the xmlrpc/client.rb. I am posting to an old version of drupal, perhaps the new versions correctly return Content-Type as “text/xml, and not html.
