I’m starting a (hopefully short) series of blog posts documenting the specifics of how the upcoming AtomPub-enabled release of Windows Live Writer will behave, and what AtomPub-enabled blog* servers can do to ensure the best interop with us. I also hope other blog client implementers can learn from our experience and consider using the same rules and behaviors we do when implementing their own AtomPub support.
I’m not sure yet what exact topics will be covered, but they should at least include autodiscovery, authentication, image uploads, and categories. If there are any other specific topics you are wondering about, please don’t be shy–leave me a comment!
- WLW+AtomPub, Part 1: Autodiscovery
- WLW+AtomPub, Part 2: Authentication
- WLW+AtomPub, Part 3: Picking Collections
- WLW+AtomPub, Part 4: Categories
- WLW+AtomPub, Part 5: ETags (optional)
*Please keep in mind that, in its upcoming incarnation, Windows Live Writer is blogging client that happens to speak AtomPub; it is not a general purpose AtomPub client. AtomPub servers that aren’t about blogging (such as photo sharing, classifieds, or whatever) will probably not get a lot of mileage out of Writer.
