I’ve been blogging about my blogging tool project for awhile now and so far I’ve shown nobody anything. Well here are three screen shots that explain the project. By the way, I’ve named the project, and thus the application, TypeWriter.
This is the main screen of the application. The blogs you own are displayed on the left along with the categories associated with each blogs. The basic post entry fields are on the right. The three options near the bottom right are blog specific (similar to Categories) and are saved across for each blog across session.
You will notice that there is no posts displayed in the tree view on the left. This is due to the date/time format problem I am having with TypePad and XML-RPC.
The only working toolbar buttons are: Connect, New, Delete, Bold, Italic, and Anchor.
As you can see, I’ve taken inspiration from a number of outstanding blogging applications such as Kung-Log/ecto, and NetNewsWire. I hope by combining the good features (IMHO) of all these applications I’ve created something good and usable to most bloggers!
Also obvious from these screen shots are that I need help in getting some toolbar icons. If anyone knows where I can get free toolbar icons for Windows, please let me know.
Update: All TypeWriter related posts are now in the ecto blog.
