The O'Reilly mess

O'Reilly has been doing all sorts of tinkering with their feeds and such, and the results are largely a mess. I won't do too much wailing about it here, but Jeni touches on some of the problems. It was a pain to extract useful information for reflecting ORA on Copia, so it's captured here:

My new author feed (broadcast.oreilly.com only)

Direct link to an HTML listing of all blog posts (including non-broadcast)

http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/au/1054#Blog I had to go sleuthing on planet.xmlhack.com to find the $@#%! feed for these old posts. What's up with bog-simple feed discovery?

Outdated info

To-do

Set-up and import

Download the import-copia.py script.

Download copia.ini.

We use tagsoup to clean up the entries upon import. It should be enough to download the tagsoup jar file to the same location as the import-copia.py script.

The ogbuji template is at: http://hg.4suite.org/sandbox/ogbuji/copia-template/ (read/write repository at ssh://hg.4suite.org//var/local/hg/sandbox/ogbuji/copia-template ). It's based on this "open source" design

hg clone ssh://hg.4suite.org//var/local/hg/sandbox/ogbuji/copia-template ogbuji

The Copia template then be placed in the template directory, peer to a couple of other dependencies from templates. Below is a directory listing of Copia install once set up.

Editor notes

You can convert a permalink URL to an admin edit one as fllows:

http://copia.ogbuji.net/blog/2008/01/29/del_icio_us_bookmarks_for_2008-01-28/

becomes:

http://copia.ogbuji.net/blog/admin/edit/2008/01/29/del_icio_us_bookmarks_for_2008-01-28.atom

echo http://copia.ogbuji.net/blog/2008/01/29/del_icio_us_bookmarks_for_2008-01-28/ | python -c "import sys; print sys.stdin.read().strip().replace('blog', 'blog/admin/edit').rstrip('/') + '.atom'"
