I just wrote a story on the XML-RPC site with four sample scripts, that show you how to edit a Manila site’s home page using SOAP. Here’s a quote from Scripting News:

“We’d like to see two specific projects come from this. An editor that runs on Unix, perhaps emacs or vi, that through Apache, allows a user to create and edit stories and update the home page of a Manila site in the same natural way that Radio works with Manila. The other project is to write a .NET application that allows the CLR to be a great editor for Manila text in the same way…

“All you’ll have to do is emulate the functionality in other scripting environments. Then we’ll have a very important kind of interop, between writers on all these platforms.”

It’s important to note that you can do this with XML-RPC too. You’re not tied to SOAP. The RPC interface to Manila is identical, no matter which protocol you decide to use.

I just subscribed to a bunch of new channels via my Hot List page in Radio, paying special attention to the ones near the bottom of the list.

I found some interesting stuff… (Yes, I’m an Internet catfish)

Why newbies rock:

“I’m having fun thinking about all the different places I could start managing using Radio. I can start using some of that excess web space on the @Home webserver. I could get off of my butt and make Zope be an upstreaming destination.” Interesting idea!

“With a little work, we could have a small Python program that just copied the files and lets Apache do what [it] does best. Heck, that looks like what UserLand is doing with OurFavoriteSongs, but with Frontier rather than Python.” It is.
