The idea from the photolog came from this helpful site
. It's not completely finished yet, as some of the styling on the individual entries isn't quite right, but I think it's okay for the moment. It's currently set up to display a maximum of seven photos on the main page before shuffling the last one off to parts unknown (there will be a proper index page for all the photos eventually). I'm using a mix of AppleScript
and string for publishing; select the picture in iPhoto
, then click on the script in NetNewsWire
. The AppleScript sends the picture and the thumbnail to the server and constructs the basic HTML for the new blog entry. Exciting stuff.
Oh, and if you're using a fancy newsreader to read this, you can subscribe to the photolog's individual feed (RSS 2.0 at the moment).
I would promise less boring stuff tomorrow, but I'm heading off to London for the STAND meeting, so there's a good chance tomorrow will be full of talk of identity cards. You might get some new pictures, though.
Hmm. Have a song as recompense for making it this far (contains Wilco).
