Which blog tool

I currently use python to automatically summarise a certain newsgroup
daily, and post the findings that it makes. Someone has suggested that
they would like a to see a blog of the posts. I wondered if there was a
python tool/library that could automate the blog postings. Any ideas?

Some details:
* the summaries are basically just text files
* I already have a blog at www.blogger.com
(http://markcarterturriff.blogspot.com/), so I would like to use that if
possible; although any alternative free one that I can use to achieve my
objective would be OK, too.
* I do have my own hosted website, which can use perl but not python;
but I'd rather use a freebie blog site
* the whole thing must be scriptable, because it will run daily. A GUI
would therefore likely get in the way.
* generating an RSS feed would be nice

You can use the Blogger API to post to your Blogger account. There's a
Python interface to the API -- PyBlogger -- available here:
http://beetle.cbtlsl.com/archives/category/pyblogger

You could also use a free service like LiveJournal
(http://www.livejournal.com/). There are several clients available to
post to LJ. I don't know if a Python wrapper to post is available or
not. IAC, it'd be a few lines of code to make the XML-RPC calls. The
protocol docs are available here:
http://www.livejournal.com/doc/serve....protocol.html

Hey, it Just Works! I got the whole basic thing working in a few
minutes. It was exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for the link.

There's actually a very simple way to achieve this. In your blogger
settings you can specify an email address to which you can email blog
posts. Using this, you can simply mail the content from within your
python script. I think that's probably the most hassle-free way.

So all I need is a script that could produce only needed parts of the page (without html, body tags) with specified CSS classes and support threaded comments. Any hope I can find...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
