Minimum required KDE 4.x
|Submitted: Sep 27 2005|
Updated: Feb 25 2009
KBlogger development has stalled lately and I propose using Bilbo, unless somebody comes up and works on KBlogger. Bilbo has almost the same concept,which was planned for KBlogger. I'll focus on KBlog (the library in kdepimlibs), which is used by Bilbo as well and maybe do a plasmoid which will be like the KDE3 kblogger.
Recent sources are in KDE svn at: svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/playground/pim/kblogger"
If you seriously are willing to work on KBlogger to push a 1.0 release (which should be still quite some work) you can contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org .
KBlogger pre1.0 is a kicker-applet for quick blogging, like gnome-blog. Just push the blog button and blog!
It supports the Meta-Weblog-Api, which is supported by most blogs, and Blogger API 1.0.
KBlogger beginning from 1.0 is a full fledged blog manager for KDE 4. It supports Blogspot, Wordpress, Drupal and LiveJournal accounts. In general all blog backends/servers that support MovableType/MetaWeblog/Blogger1.0 or GData are supported, which are quite a lot.
DEPENDENCIES: You need kdebase-dev-4.0.0 and kdepimlibs-dev-4.0.0 (which depends on qt-4.3.3, kdelibs-4.0.0, kdelibs-dev-4.0.0 and kdepimlibs-dev-4.0.0).
THE KDE4 VERSION IS ALPHA CODE AT THE MOMENT, ONLY USE IT IF YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS.
Additional infos can be found on the webpage.
