"Invalid password" when calling login method over XML-RPC
A week or two ago my LJBackup client started being unable to login - I didn't change anything (I think!), but now I always get an "Invalid password" response.

I'm using the XMLRPC method with the challenge-response scheme.

Anyone else seeing something similar?

Thanks!

cl-journal livejournal client
Hey everyone,

I'd like to present a livejournal client that I wrote to fulfill my needs but maybe there are other people that can find it useful.

The general idea is that the best way to write text is to to it in a favorite text editor in a plain text file, since you can easily save it, back it up or keep it as a draft without any fear that it gets lost. In addition it's much easier to search through text files than to do it by going through blog pages or using livejournal blog search.

cl-journal provides this oportunity. All posts are just markdown files that you write and later publish with one command. Client not only publishes new posts but also handles post modifications and deletes.

At the moment client only pushes data to the server and won't know if post was modified via web interface, so it's better to use it to publish posts and do all modifications. The good part is that you can manage only selected posts with the client and publish others by usual means.

For a full feature set please have a look on a home page, for release announcements please feel free to join cl_journal_cli community.

Some of the next features I'm planning to work on is a pull from the server, so that it's possible to get all blog history as text files and post templates so that it's easier to handle layout changes and things like table of contents.

At the moment only Mac OS X is supported, although other operating systems should be more or less trivial to support.

Thanks for your attention!

SessionGenerate and ljloggedin
Are there any information after release 86 and changes in cookies scheme to use sessiongenerate?
It returns ljsession key, but this key is not enough for calling getfriendspage method, for example, but is enough for login method.

LiveJournal API for Node
Hey. I maintain the node-livejournal - LiveJournal API for Node (via XMLRPC), plus some utility methods.

XMLRPC currently even supports OAuth 1.0, but you need to talk to LJ devs to get the API key. There is a working prototype app with OAuth support here http://en.ljreader.com/, if anyone is interested I can merge the auth code into node-livejournal.

Also feel free to contribute.

LiveJournal Source Code Archive

The official LiveJournal source repository at code.livejournal.org has been closed to those who don't work for LiveJournal since early 2014.

As a way of preserving (part of) the history of LiveJournal for posterity, I've created an archive repository, converted from Subversion to git so it's more usable with modern tools, that reflects every change from the LJ Subversion repository up to the end of March 2014.

After a considerable amount of history spelunking (with the help of burr86) I've been able to preserve the authorship information for many of the committers during the coversion to git, where possible using current email addresses to allow the commits to be attributed to each person's current github account.

I doubt anyone wants to run this code anymore (for that, the Dreamwidth code fork is probably an easier starting point) but I personally think LiveJournal made a significant contribution to the disciplines of collaborative development, scalable web application deployment and the social web, and thus I think its history (of which this codebase is a significant part) is worth preserving.

I hope someone finds this useful or interesting someday.

ЖЖ на телефоне обновился и сдох(
Смотрю - а телефон вдруг решил обновления качнуть! С Андроидом 2.3 - обновления надо выключать, но я освобождал место в памяти и снёс параметры Google Play... И в благодарность, почуяв исчезновение запрета на обновление, телефон стал качать новые версии софтин...

Так и пала ЖЖчка 0.4.1 на моём телефоне, заменившись на 1.0, которая запускается, сообщает о том, что не работает на андроиде версиями ниже 4, и всё - ничего с ним не сделать.

Как быть? Несмотря на возраст телефона (3.5 года) до рутовских прав у меня руки не дошли...
Искать по сайтикам с софтом древнюю версию?

AddComment method
Hi. This method works only for my posts, but I can't add comment to non-my posts. Each attempt returns this error:


<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>

<methodResponse>

<fault>

<value>

<struct>

<member>

<name>faultString</name>

<value>

<string>Client error: Not allowed to create comment</string>

</value>

</member>

<member>

<name>faultCode</name>

<value>

<int>337</int>

</value>

</member>

</struct>

</value>

</fault>

</methodResponse>

I see this version of source code (http://repo.or.cz/w/livejournal.git/blob/HEAD:/cgi-bin/ljprotocol.pl#l560) I see that this error code returns if LJ::Comment->create failed but I don't understand why does it fail?
For my posts I can add comments without problem.

But in response I get Html page with access denied message.

RPC request for polling
Hey there!
I try to send request to Lj rpc-xml server for polling, but it return an error 203 - "Invalid argument(s): answers [203]".

Poll has ID
1968584 and chosen answer is 2.

The data that I send:

requestHash = new HashMap<String, Object>();
requestHash.put("pollid", "1968584");
requestHash.put("answers", "2");
client.call("LJ.XMLRPC.votepoll", requestHash);

In ljprotocol.pl I found following code:

# check answers parameter
  my $answers = $req->{answers};
  return fail($err, 200, 'answers') unless($answers);
  return fail($err, 203, 'answers') unless(ref $answers eq 'HASH');

But I can't understand, what means 'HASH' :(
Please, help me to find out, what am I doing wrong.

Web source code frontend broken?
When trying to look up the change history of a particular bit of the LJ source just now, I noticed that the web frontend for the LJ source is returning blank. Is this change deliberate, or just a temporary glitch?

is_show, is_loaded in getcomments
Hi, has someone figured out what the parameters "is_show" and "is_loaded" mean exactly? They are returned by the getcomments function. I've played around a bit and I can see that the are both generally set to 1, but they will be both set to 0, if the comment was deleted. Do situations such as this ever occur?

is_show = 0
is_loaded = 1

OR

is_show = 1
is_loaded = 0

Hello, guys!
Lately I made a program to upload pictures on LJ server (Page on SoftPedia). It's quite simple at look and same simple in use, so hope people will enjoy it.
If you have any ideas how to improve it, welcome!

Program is written on C#/.NET 4.5, uses PhotoBilder API.

No more private photo uploads?
(I asked this in the support forum, too, but I'm not getting any response; maybe this community is a better place to find the people who know.)

I maintain a photo uploader for Android which uses the Fotobilder API. Yesterday I noticed that private uploads, using the PicSec: 0 setting, were not working: they get an error message:

<Error code='211'>Invalid argument: PicSec</Error>

When I switch to public (PicSec: 255) or friends-locked (PicSec: 254), the client works correctly. And I know PicSec: 0 was working no more than three weeks ago.

Does anybody know whether private uploads have been deliberately blocked in the Fotobilder API for some reason, or is it just a bug?

(On further experimentation, I find that GalSec: 0 is also being refused, which makes me think it's more likely to be deliberate...)
