TOTD #17: Backing Up your Blog Posts on Roller
By arungupta on Nov 13, 2007
- Download blogapps-examples (1.0.4 as of this writing).
- Go to the directory
- Go to
blogapps-examples-1.0.4\\java\\ex02\\dist\\grabberdirectory and edit
config.propertiesto match your settings. My config file looks like:
- If you are running behind a firewall, add proxy host and port
java -Dhttp.proxyHost=<proxy host> -Dhttp.proxyPort=<proxy port> -classpath %_cp_% com.manning.blogapps.extra02.Grabber %1 %2 %3
- And run the script
All the blog entries are locally stored in the directory specified in
./bsc_saved in this case). And a convenient
grabber-index.html page is generated that indexes all the entries.
There are multiple directories in my blog resources. Moreover I'd like to link the resources to my backed up blog posts as well. So backing up resources seems like a slightly more involved process so I'll try that later. Otherwise Grabber is very cool and convenient for those in-flight and airport lounge times :)
Please leave suggestions on other TOTD that you'd like to see. A complete archive is available here.
