New Typo Install - install notes, theme viewer and an import

I just put together a tutorial on installing Typo (2.6.0 with captive
Rails)
with MySQL, Apache, lighttpd and FastCGI if anyone is interested:

http://www.dev411.com/wiki/Installing_Typo:_MySQL%2C_FastCGI%2C_Apache_and_lighttpd

I also put together a Typo Theme Viewer app using Scriptaculous’
Sortable.
Right now it only covers the themes at Typo Garden but others can be
added.
It’s primarily designed to make visual scanning a lot easier.

The blog has posts on both if you have comments questions - I’m still
not
sure it’s fully operational. Sometimes I get strange Rails errors but
they
are intermittent.

Finally, is there a good way to import blog entries/comments from
Blogger?
If not, how would one go about doing this. Is there any partial code
already
available?

Thanks,
John

Very nice work John. Crying shame that those themes are broken on
trunk as that would be a handy resource. The fellas at Typogarden
should have a word with you.

I thought there was one - but there isn’t. I’d use a Blogger to MT/
Wordpress/Textpattern converter and then convert that from the Typo
converters that are available.

There’s an importer that will take an RSS feed and import it. A blogger
API
extractor would be cool, but I’ve never seen one.

They’re a good deal less broken than they were though. If memory
serves it should just be a matter of tweaking the layout head and
possibly the code to render the sidebar (the trunk’s way of rendering
the sidebar worked in 2.6.0, but the old, explicit way doesn’t work
any more)

Yes, the theme page is cool.

I will have the first version of a subversion backed theme repository up
and accessible on Sunday evening or Monday morning. That will allow
themes to keep up with trunk while still retaining copies that work on
older versions of Typo. I have most of the back end testing processes
written, and now I’m working on the front end. I’d be done if it
weren’t for my day job… :slight_smile:

Perhaps themes that go into the new repository can appear on your
preview page as well?

That sounds great and would solve a lot of issues.

Sure, they’d be easy to add. Just let me know when and where.
