[NDS App] Pictoblog

Pictoblog

A picture blogging client for the DS, by 0xtob


What's this?

Pictoblog is an app that allows you to post pictures to your blog from everywhere!

Pictoblog uses the Metaweblog API, which is a very popular API supported by major CMSs such as Wordpress and Drupal and dozens of others.

Wikipedia has a list ofs CMSs supporting it:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MetaWeblog

Demonstration

Here's a blog I set up for testing. It's the default settings in the configuration file, so I don't take responsibility for the contents!

http://pictoblogtest.wordpress.com/


Setup

  • Patch Pictoblog with the DLDI patch for your card
  • Edit pictoblog.ini according to your blog's settings
  • Copy Pictoblog and pictoblog.ini to the root of your card

If you just want to try it out, you can leave pictoblog.ini unchanged. You posts will then be published on the test blog.

Please don't flood the blog or post inappropriate pictures!

For detailed usage instructions, refer to the included readme file.


Happy blogging!

EDIT: Due to a bug in the wifilib, posting fails most of the time in the attached version. A fixed version that works 100% reliable is available here:

So the aim of your app is to send an image on a blog, that's right ? Ok, I will test that  ::sm-21.gif::

Hi,
I think it's going to be a very cool app if we can send text on the blog, not only title :)
But it's already pretty cool :)

Thx

"Shift" on the keyboard doesn't work, nor does caps lock.

When attempting to upload to the test blog, I get a server timeout far more often than not.

One thing, though.  I'd really like to see a color palette and some size options.

Thanks for all the nice comments!

Hi,

Hey, you can do post text with the DS Browser. Also, a picture says more than a thousand words :-)

I'm sorry about the timeout problem. It's a bug in the app, and I'm currently trying to fix it. I'll let you know when I found the problem.

0xtob, this is a seriously nice DS app! I keep getting a server timeout too, but I'm waiting anxiously for when you release a fix for it. I'm going to try making my own pictoblog with this, too.

Also would like to see colours, fill and an eraser tool, too, if you have the time for that. ;D Also, it doesn't suspend when you close your DS, either, which would be useful for power saving.

I'd definitely use this once it's completed!

maybe as well as being able to upload pictures generated in the program you could upload save pictures... say .bmp's saved from phidias.. or .txt files from dsorganise...

EH? :D
EH? :D

Good news everyone!

It turns out the problem was a bug in the dswifi library, which is now fixed thanks to sgstair. The fixed version of Pictoblog is available here:

Happy Blogging!
