entire journal as one 17MB html file [Apr. 9th, 2004|05:45 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Uber-monkey Junior (xb95) wrote a script which uses LiveJournal's APIs to fetch all your journal entries and comments from the server, and incrementally. (well, the APIs we provide try to force the user into syncing and not re-downloading every time)

Anyway, here ya go:

http://www.bradfitz.com/journal.html [17 MB]

Don't diss the ugly HTML. That's not the point. The point is it's my entire journal in one big damn file! :P

[ coming soon to cvs repositories near you.... ]

random question but how does it deal with any form of protection? is it ignored or not retrevied or do you have to log in to download your entire journal therefore haveing all protected entries there?

very cool script though. I may have to attempt to get that from someone. programing is not my strong point.

It syncs your entire account, regardless of security.

But when you export (to xml, html, raw, etc), you can choose what security level to filter on. The 17MB dump I did above was filtered on public-only.

XML-RPC?

Can I get comments for a post using the XML-RPC API? I am wondering how I could write a script like that!

Re: XML-RPC?

You cannot.

For now the only interface is:

Stupid Questions:
  1. Does it handle security/filters?
  2. Does it handle screened comments?

See my reply to somebody else above. (it was screened too, so you couldn't see somebody else asked)

Internet Explorer's "Print Preview" feature had it up over 800 pages (8.5x11) before I decided to stop the count.
