For such notification, a new resource RSS-Watcher would be needed…

Oh, I'll look into that.

Still, notification of new rss would be really really wished. Is there an issue about it?

There is a RSS macro… No need of a forum, except if you want notification…

I hadn't considered that but it'd be actually very very very nice to have a plug to RSS.

A forum-thread, for example, could be populated by RSS:

  • either with an XML-transformation from RSS to the import format
  • or as a new resource type.
that doesn't solve the whole upload things (and indeed, there's post left for it). but it does help a lot for some of the things, I feel.

E.g., that could be used to provide awareness on subversion repositories using

did you consider the creation of a XML file that LibreSource could import ?

You could generate offline a complex structure and then upload it as resources.

Does I get the idea ?

Its standard form post HTTP method with basic authentication.

What do you need to upload ?

  • file
  • wiki content
  • something else ?

Hello LibreSourcers,

in order to make our site even more dynamic, we would like to have some of the parts be maintained by a script; for example, our publication list is generated from a BiBTeX file and it would be nice to avoid copy-and-paste and, more importantly, to have each abstract page to be a libresouce page.

Does someone have experience with a login and post using elementary http-clients? Which http-client did you use?

Is there a client API for upload into Libresource such as the Blogger or Confluence APIs?

thanks in advance paul
