Preview of Xpostulate Improvements

leave a comment »

A preview of what’s to come…

Thinking of UI enhancements, I added the Xpostulate little icon thingy right into the GUI.

What do you think?

Other items on their way:

  • Posterous support. I have interacted with the posterous api via bash with curl, so, just need to translate my scripting for that to tcl with http. Cake, but requires time. I thought I would have that done this past week, but, no joy…too much work (somebody’s gotta pay the rent around here).
  • Blogger support. – The great and benevolent Google® has granted me an API key, and I have looked at the API, but not yet played with it, but this is likely to come this season…soon, me dro0gies.
  • Read your statusnet public timeline or updates from a specific person. This I have, again, done in bash, so just a matter of coding it into tcl. Although, I question if this is appropriate for Xpostulate, and whether it might not be better to do this with iDenTickles only, since iDenTickles is a microblogging client, and Xpostulate is intended for crossposting to blogs, not reading others’ updates.
  • Download, edit, & republish older entries. This is on my todo list, but for each blogging service I have to look at how their API handles this, and then code stuff in, and develop new GUI elements for housing various functions, and blah, blah, blah. It will be work..heavy lifting…but it’s on my TODO list.

iDenTickle updated, again!

leave a comment »

I did it again.
I added more stuff to iDenTickle, again.

This time, I added the option of updating your gNewBook microblog.

I also added a handy little “clear” button.

Also, the setup and about “windows” are now just frames that appear in the main interface, rather than distinct windows.

iDenTickle v1.1 released

leave a comment »

Well…I just couldn’t leave well enough alone.
Yesterday I released version 1.0 of IdenTickle, my tcl/tk denter/tweeter tool…but I just kept thinking, it could be better.
The interface could be cleaner, with the setup stuff separate.
And, perhaps an about button, as is common, to bring up a little dialog with a bit of info, and direct the user to the homepage.
Plus buttons to open your browser to your identi.ca or twitter feed…stuff like that.

So, today you have IdenTickle version 1.1.


The main interface.


and, when you open the setup tab/frame to enter your setup information.
As you’ll recall, v 1.0 was already saving your login data (previous version required entry of said data, every time…annoying).

enjoy
