Along with the release there are a few examples such as:
- A tool that takes your upcoming Calendar entries and creates blog posts of the events
- A code snippet that you can add to your website that enables visitors to your site to click on a link to comment on your content on their own blog
- Code that allows you to search blogs on various topics, find entries, and again allow users to comment on their own blog
And finally, Blog.gears, an offline blog editor:
I tend to write a fair share of blog posts, and whenever I am writing them while offline I tend to open up Textmate to do the write-up. Wouldn’t it be nice if I could open up my blog editor and do it all while I am offline?
The architecture behind the editor follows the pattern of:
- The UI looks to the local DB for data
- When an event happens it gets queued
- When an event happens the UI tries to send it to the cloud
- Events have status flags to let the system know what is happening
We interviewed Pamela Fox about the application, and she went through the architecture at a high level, and also did a screencast of the application itself.
