/customize/ sneak peak [Aug. 18th, 2001|01:01 am]
LiveJournal Development


I've started doing the S2 customization page:


I intend to have /customize/ be the one central place to customize everything about the look of your journal, and tailored for 13 year olds, of course, unlike the existing system.

Fun stuff ahead.

XML-RPC Interface, and LJ XML DTD ? [Aug. 18th, 2001|11:58 am]
LiveJournal Development

I was wondering if there is any sort of existing XML-RPC interface to LiveJournal, either one on the LJ server itself or if maybe someone has written a wrapper around the normal interface.

If not, is there one planned ?

Also, is there an XML DTD for the LiveJournal entries anywhere ?

Shared Dev Server [Aug. 18th, 2001|06:43 pm]
LiveJournal Development


When I get back up to Seattle in a few days I'm going to be taking our redirector machine out of Speakeasy (it's served its mission) and I'll be putting it in our cabinet at InterNAP, reconfigured as a dev server for anybody that talks to me.

Everybody will have their own complete LJ dev environment, right down to your own apache and mysql you can stop & start at will.

You'll access your web root through a URL like http://lj-devbox.livejournal.com:8001/ and up.

I'll also provide all the tools you need to stay up-to-date on CVS, etc.

I've been watching too many people trying to do development on Windows & on their personal Linux boxes with everything setup wrong.... painful. So I'll take the pain and do this to make your lives easier.

& versus & [Aug. 18th, 2001|09:01 pm]

In request #12985, it was pointed out that some LJ code (most of it, actually), is outputting plain "&" characters instead of the HTML entity "&". Is this a major concern? It does violate the HTML 4 spec.

I went through the code and fixed each use of "&" that I could find; the patch is here. I have not tested it, so I'll leave it to the rest of lj_dev to decide if it's worthwhile and/or safe to be applied.
