Mark Pilgrim's PyBlogger wrapper, which is now being maintained by Brent Loertscher, looked to be the thing to try and get working. In the end this proved to be pretty easy...
PyBlogger sits ontop of the XML-RPC Python Library (
xmllibrpc.py) which isn't included with the Series 60 distribution. I downloaded this and pushed it onto my phone using Bluetooth, installing it as a library using the Python Installer along with the lower level
xmllib.pywhich I grabbed from my laptop's Python 2.3 installation.
I then installed Mark's
blogger.pylibrary in a similar fashion, and fired up the bluetooth console on my Mac,
Worked flawlessly. Can't really complain at that point. So I think my first project, just to get me used to the UI coding issues on the phone, will be a nice little app to let me blog directly from my phone. This is so much easier than Java ME...
>>> import blogger
>>> username = "USERNAME"
>>> password = "PASSWORD"
>>> blogs = blogger.listBlogs(username, password)
>>> myBlog = blogs
>>> print myBlog["url"]
