Tim Conner recently noted the release of a new AppleScript called BlogScript. The script takes advantage of the new XML-RPC feature in Apple’s recently released Mac OS X 10.1 update.
XML-RPC is a technical specification and a set of implementations that enables software on different platforms running in different environments to make remote procedure calls over the Internet using HTTP.
“It was also designed to function in the new Script Menu of 10.1,” wrote Conner. It is a powerfully convenient little script that allows users of Blogger.com to post instantly to a user’s weblog from any application without the need to login or even launch a browser. Just copy some text, and choose BlogScript from the Script menu and your site is published.”
The software is
available for download, and it’s being distributed as freeware so it won’t cost you a cent.
