TOTD #17: Backing Up your Blog Posts on Roller

This TOTD explains how to back up your blog posts hosted on Roller-based installations. The instructions are borrowed from Rich's original post.

  1. Download blogapps-examples (1.0.4 as of this writing).
  2. Go to the directory blogapps-examples-1.0.4\\java and invoke ant.
  3. Go to blogapps-examples-1.0.4\\java\\ex02\\dist\\grabber directory and edit config.properties to match your settings. My config file looks like:

    download_dir=./bsc_saved
    blog_apitype=metaweblog
    blog_username=arungupta
    blog_password=<my password>
    blog_id=arungupta
    blog_url=http://blogs.sun.com/roller-services/xmlrpc
    max_entries=1000
  4. If you are running behind a firewall, add proxy host and port information to Grabber.bat as:

    java -Dhttp.proxyHost=<proxy host> -Dhttp.proxyPort=<proxy port> -classpath %_cp_% com.manning.blogapps.extra02.Grabber %1 %2 %3
  5. And run the script Grabber.bat.

All the blog entries are locally stored in the directory specified in config.properties (./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.

Roller, Sun and Web 2.0 tags

blogs.sun.com (the blogosphere of all Sun employees) allows each blog entry to be directly posted to a social bookmarking website, for example submit them to del.icio.us, dig them on Digg, discuss on Slashdot and other Web 2.0 sites. And it enables that by providing additional macros that can be specified in the page template. Once the macros are saved to the page template and the blog page is refreshed, all entries are updated with an icon and a link for the website. For example, going forward all my blog entries here will have an icon and link to del.icio.us (social bookmarking), furl (personal web archive), simpy (social bookmarking), slashdot (news for nerds), technorati (blog search engine), and digg (community-based popularity website). If you are a Sun employee, send me an email and I'll send you the instructions to include these icons in your blog. 

Yet another way Sun has embraced Web 2.0.
