Serious XML-RPC business


Retrieving data from server.


Note: The search is for all words in a weblog of a certain day.

Technical Details

Almost everything on this page is dynamic. First, when the page loads, an XML-RPC call is made to my RDF(-like) database, to retrieve the list of dates that have a weblog page. From this the calendar interface is built. When a date is selected, then a new XML-RPC call is made to retrieve the text from the database. This text is shown and scraped to build the links list.

The data in de database is posted with Radio Userland, through a Manila XML-RPC call. The search feature also makes an XML-RPC call to retrieve the weblogs that contain certain words.
