Drivel: Offline blogging client

Filed under: FOSS,Linux — mifan @ 12:59 pm

Finally, I’ve crash landed on a single offline blogging client, and I hope this would be the start of a long lasting friendship. Drivel, an apt-get away on Ubuntu, is a desktop blogging client which allows you to post/blog to multiple blogs, from the comfort of your dektop (literally). It supports various types of Journals: LiveJournal, Atom, Blogger, MovableType and Advogato, and thus any blog that supports one of these types, including WordPress and Drupal using MovableType. Users have the ability to store their username, password for various accounts, and work offline saving blog posts for delayed posting. And the simple, uncluttered, spartan-looking user interface gives that polished look to the client. All in all, lets hope I blog more (ok…at least I’m hoping I do 🙂 )
