I've been working hard on adding multiple simultaneous connections to Juice 2. This will allow more than one connection to Blogger, and even other services in the near future. I have reached the final stages of programming this update, so look for a CVS commit after I finish testing. I have also started adding Atom support, which will bring full support of post titles. I will keep you posted.

Wednesday, March 16, 2005 - Another Note...  

Another note to anyone building Juice 2. You must input the Blogger server name as well as your username and password in the preferences window before you can connect. The URL of the XML-RPC server is: http://plant.blogger.com/api/RPC2 . In addition, XCode will recognize the GSPreferences framework you've compiled if you first delete the old reference to it and then add it again using "Add Existing Frameworks". Also, remember to add it to the "copy files" build phase.

Tuesday, March 15, 2005 - Required Juice Frameworks  

Just a note for everyone trying to build Juice 2 and running into problems with the required frameworks. The Keychain framework as well as the GSPreferences framework must be downloaded and built separately. The Keychain framework is a Source Forge project and can be downloaded from http://sourceforge.net/projects/keychain/ (The package is called "Framework"). The GSPreferences framework has been posted under the "GSPreferences" module in the juice CVS repository (should take 24 hours to sync). To download this, follow the instructions of the developer page, but replace "juice2" with "GSPreferences". Send me an email if you have any problems.

Friday, March 11, 2005 - A New Page  

The day has finally come. I have uploaded the working source for Juice 2 onto the CVS servers. Check it out, it should work fine within 24 hours when the dev server syncs with the public server. I would appreciate any feedback or comments. Remember, this is in no way feature complete.

Hey folks. I'm updating the progress I've made on Juice. I know it's been awhile since I've posted, but Juice is by no means dead. The first version was clunky and awkward, so I've completely overhauled Juice, and I'm almost ready to release a preview of it, so look for it in the coming months. Email me if you have any questions.

Good news everyone! The folks at Blogger have just patched the Blogger API, and everything is working perfectly. I'm thinking that the program is almost complete, I can't really find too much to add now, so look for a beta by June. Yeah!

There is a minor set back with the project, but there seems to be a fix in the works. In case you haven't noticed, Blogger has just rolled out it's new pimped out interface, but this has caused problems with the API that Juice uses. Namely, the delete and edit post comands do not function properly. As I said, the Blogger developers are working on a fix, but in the meantime this has caused me too look more seriously at the new Atom API which supports so many more features than Blogger API but is still in its infancy. It seems to be too buggy right now, but look for ATOM support in the future.
