BloggerBuddy Hacks: Change the look and feel

With this post i am starting a small series of posts about customizing and maintaining BloggerBuddy. As you know BloggerBuddy is built upon the Adobe framework, AIR. This actually allows a programmer to use web development techniques and languages (HTML, Javascript) on a desktop application. What makes it unique is that it flawlessly integrates on online services. So, essentially, BloggerBuddy is a web service, a “web site” if i may use the term. I’ve been asked before how you can change the width of the separator between the subscribed blogs and the feeds. It would be good if i added...

BloggerBuddy: Update to v0.5.1

The last couple of days my friend Sire brought to my attention a small problem on BloggerBuddy. There was a conversation on the update post here about it. What was happening is that on the individual feed view, i.e. when clicking on a specific feed to view posts from that blog only, the posts would be randomly ordered rather than ordered by date, as they should be. I also noticed that the same thing happened when you would do a search. Thanks to him i took another look at my code and i found out that i had a small problem. I fixed it and decided it is worth releasing a small update. This is now on...

BloggerBuddy: Small update to v0.5

Just two days have gone by and here i am with a minor update to my beloved BloggerBuddy. After a conversation with Raju i realized that if i want to motivate a migration from any reader to BloggerBuddy i should implement some kind of import.

I got a small export, tinkered a little with it and here i am with an update to v0.5 that actually adds this feature! The format that you can import is OPML. If you are using Google reader and want to try out...

BloggerBuddy: Now on Beta version (v0.4)

I have been using BloggerBuddy since day one. It’s not like me to use the software i write just because i think that someone else has done it better. But this time i think that this program is the best on the market for me. It suits my needs perfectly. Since day one i have had a better blogging experience with it. No more painful page by page opening, no more comment tracking no nothing. I just fire up BloggerBuddy and there i have it. All the posts from my friends’ blogs that i haven’t read yet in one place. I can still see that question in your face “why not Google reader or...

BloggerBuddy: My approach to RSS readers

I’ve been upsent for quite some time now. This is because i was onto something. I was learning the framework of Adobe AIR. It’s a quite nice tool for rapid desktop development with Web standards. You actually use Javascript and HTML to code desktop applications. In order to find my way around this new technology i needed a project. Some people find it convenient to learn by buying a book. What i do is i throw my self into some serious coding. That is my way of learning. So, i decided to go on with a project. It is called “BloggerBuddy” and it is an approach of mine on an RSS...
