For people that are command-line addicts like me, or people that are
using operating systems where there isn’t a good blogging client
available, here goes a mini-HOWTO on how to setup Pyrite-BlogAuthor
and join the Blog Wagon:
# cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/pyrite co pyrite-blogauthor # cvs -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/pyrite co pyrite-core # cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/cheetahtemplate co Cheetah # cd pyrite-blogauthor # python setup.py install # cd .. # cd pyrite-core # python setup.py install # cd .. # cd Cheetah # python setup.py install
That may get you set up for start blogging. Now type the following for
some help on where to start:
# blog help
This will give you a list of commands and switches available. Try for
example, blog help addacct:
[sidnei@isengard:~/src]$ blog help addacct Byline v0.6beta Open Source; Copyright 2002-2003 Rob Tillotson <firstname.lastname@example.org> Usage: blog [options] <command> [command-options] [args] blog addacct Add a new account. Byline will attempt to determine as much of the required information as it can; you will be prompted for the rest. At minimum, you need to know your weblog's home page URL and what weblog tool you use; in many cases, Byline can figure everything else out on its own.
CMFWeblog doesn’t currently support RSD, so you will have to use
http://yourwebsite/portal_weblog as the API URL. I hope to get
some help from Paul to add RSD support to it.
