tru_podcast: A podcasting plugin for Textpattern

filed under: , , ,

15 January 2007

A friend of mine, Amitai, has been wanting podcasting support for his blog for a long while. He uses Textpattern, as I do, and it doesn’t support podcasting. Until recently, it was impossible to create a plugin to support it, but changes made in Textpattern 4.0.4 have made it possible. I therefore offered to help him create a podcasting plugin, and the net result was that I wrote it myself :)

I’m publishing it here as tru_podcast. It was designed to be simple, although I’m sure the feature requests are going to come piling in immediately, and it will grow. It supports Atom and RSS, with a single “enclosure” per article. The media file is specified via one of Textpattern’s custom fields.

I don’t actually use the plugin, but you can see it in use in Amitai’s music feed. Check out the feature list, releases, and usage instructions, and let me know what you think.

    This is fantastic! Thank you again, and enjoy the soon-to-be-interminable stream of obnoxious “music” that I am wont to produce.

    2910 days after my previous comment, I’ve moved my podcast off Textpattern and tru_podcast. That’s a lot of days. Thank you for having made and maintained this!
