Broken blogroll

2003-01-21 19:25:29 UTC

So, I'd just fixed myself up with a nice script to generate a blogroll from AmphetaDesk and upload it to my website, and what did I do? I switched to using Straw instead.

Straw can export to OPML, which my uploading script relies on, but it doesn't use it natively, and to export to OPML you have to manually request it. What I want is something that's completely automatic, so I hacked Straw to save an OPML file every time it saves its config. This almost works, but there are still some bugs, and next time I upgrade I'm going to have to remember to put that hack into the new version. Hopefully I'll get the chance to improve it at some point.
