So, I’ve taken up playing with xml-rpc to see if I can make it work with external applications such as Scribefire. I have downloaded but had no luck with http://modxcms.com/forums/index.php/topic,5827.msg42532.html#msg42532.
After looking at it for a while it seems to me that we could make this easier by either building it as a snippet and including it in a document in modx and then accessing the appropriate functions vs. connecting as an external xmlrpc.php file for this.
It would seem that a single file xmlrpc would be best instead of a snippet plus a snippet call but I’m looking at trying to be modx-y about this.
Possible reason’s to have it as a snippet would be to enable bloggers to put the snippet calling document under the blog parent document and therefore be able to have multiple blogs on the same server with different authors and different logins.
On the flip side is there a way to get access to the modx document parser class from a script along side a modx install without installing the MODx API and not opening up the site to security issues?
So, any thoughts on this would be appreciated as I build the modx blog kit.
