Write a Windows Live Writer plugin using C#
Keyvan gives a nice intro to writing plugins in C#. (I still recommend reading the official docs before you set off building your own, though!)
Today Jayson and I were chatting about lack of Currently Playing song functionality in Live Writer (it’s one of cool features in BlogMl and W.Bloggar) and decided to have a competition to write its plugin for Live Writer ourselves. I started working on Windows Media Player plugin and he worked on Winamp. He could finish his job and posted about it here. But I couldn’t finish writing that plugin because my Windows Media Player has some problems and I couldn’t get its ActiveX reference (AxWMPLib) to work.
However I didn’t want to sleep without writing a plugin and tried to write a more useful plugin to add Technorati tags to blog posts. Here I write about the process I followed to let others start coding for Live Writer. I created a workspace on CodePlex to write plugins for fun and share them with others.
