I know I’ve got one lying around – here’s one – my backup script.
Quicksilver is unresponsive while the script is running and completely ignores my increasingly frantic key invocations. Forcing me to actually use the dock and Finder. Blah.
I noticed this briefly when I was playing around with adding Twitter support to qspress. In the end, I decided to use Alex King’s Twitter Tools plugin because the Quicksilver (via qspress) -> WordPress -> (via Twitter Tools) Twitter publishing flow made more sense than sending to WordPress & Twitter simultaneously.
So, I cooked up a little script (11 lines) to post directly to this blog from Quicksilver. If you’ve got a WordPress blog, or blog that understands the MetaWeblogAPI (though, I’ve only tested it on WP).
Last time I checked, Flickr’s ‘blog this’ was XML-RPC. Copy-and-Paste and XML-RPC are two different things. C-and-P exists because video needs at least one ‘embed’ tag and well, that’s hard. Add to that, XML-RPC needs an end-point url and a password, that’s a level of complexity above – ‘here take this code’. They serve two different functions – though the final product looks similar.
