Welcome to Blog Converters. This project contains a number of converters to and from different Blog services. The code is written in Python with scripts to execute the conversionseither on the command-line scripts or hosted on Google App Engine. This projectis open source and distributed under the Apache license. Please feel free to add to or modify this source and propose changes or new converters. This project makes extensive use of the Google GData API. For notes on installing python that is suitable for this API, see: http://gdata-python-client.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/INSTALL.txt The directory structure for this project: bin/ - Runnable scripts lib/ - Project dependencies googleappengine/ - External reference to the Google App Engine source. Useful for running hosted converters. gdata/ - Google's Data API for communication to various Google services. atom/ - Library for native Atom parsing/creation in Python src/ - Source for the converters samples/ - Sample export files for various formats. There are a number of scripts in the bin/ directory that demonstrate the various conversions available. For instance: bin/wordpress2blogger.sh samples/wordpress-sample.wxr will emit a Blogger export file that can be used to upload the Wordpress blog contents to Blogger. Similarly: bin/blogger2wordpress.sh samples/blogger-sample.xml will convert from a Blogger export file to a Wordpress export file. There also exist batch files in the bin/ directory for those working in a Windows environment. To run a demonstration of a Google App Engine hosted conversion, run the command: bin/run-appengine.sh [-p <port>] blogger2wordpress or bin/run-appengine.sh [-p <port>] wordpress2blogger will execute the hosted version of the converters. Just direct a browser to http://localhost:port and you will see a page that takes an export file, converts the uploaded file and provides a converted file for download. The default port with the -p flag is not used is 8080. Note that these converters are also hosted directly on Google App Engine with the latest code checked into this projects SVN directory. The hostname for these converters uses the same name as the directories found in the src/ directory. See: http://blogger2wordpress.appspot.com/ http://wordpress2blogger.appspot.com/ http://livejournal2blogger.appspot.com/ for examples of these converters hosted on Google App Engine. Note that there is a huge caveat to using these hosted services at the moment in that there is a limit to the size of a downloaded file on appspot.com of 1 MB of data. Thus, these hosted applications should only be used for reference or for the conversion of small blog export files. Enjoy! -JJ. jlueck @ gmail.com of the Data Liberation Front
