Started using w.bloggar

I have just started to use w.bloggar instead of Moveable Types own interface, which I had been using because I didn't like any of the other RPC blogging tools I had tried. W.blogger is quite nice. The spell checker doesn't really work that well and the RPC api does not support all the interactions and editing features of the MT post editing page, but the advantages of a rather nice, local responsive GUI far outweigh any complaints. Never again will I have to deal with the annoyances of

  • Losing the MT browser editor window because it was opened from a child window whose parent then decided to reload some other page

  • Having a miniscule text field as your primary editor

  • Living with the browsers usual funky behaviour of search, up, down, home, end when you're editing in a browser text field

Of course the optimal system isn't a special GUI at all but just an add-in to your favourite editor. For that reason, Just and I are working on an MS word add-in that will automagically translate documents built with a certaint template as blog posts.

I'd be interested in the Word add-in.
Have you seen ?
I had that working, but it was not really good enough for production use.
