25.2.06 # WikyBloggerBox

As a proof of concept to combine Blogger with a pure clientside Wiki/HTML converter, I implemented WikyBloggerBox. In fact it is the modified BloggerBox and WikyBox, which works on top of Blogger's Atom API for remote communication and Wiky.

Some noteworthy points are:

  • conversion from/to Wiki syntax to/from HTML is performed clientside. So Blogger only sees validating XHTML.
  • The HTML code create depends only minimally on internal CSS – as long as no math formulas are used. So this solution is supposed to be friendly to weblog readers.
  • Wiky supports a simplified LaTeX markup to create cross-browser math formulas purely in HTML/CSS.
