I've been hard at work on Bluetrait 2.1 and have now successfully got events to sync up to a master Bluetrait install.
So I've decided that the Bluetrait Event Viewer needed some love and have been working on a new WordPress plugin called Bluetrait Connector.
This plugin will allow a WordPress install to connect via SOAP to a Bluetrait server.
Basically using Bluetrait 2.1 + Bluetrait Event Viewer 1.9 and Bluetrait Connector you will be able to sync events from a WordPress install to Bluetrait.
I plan to have a beta release of these three programs this weekend :)
With the work I've been doing with the Sydney Business Exchange website, I've decided that all my PHP applications need to be able to talk easily with each other over the internet.
So I have been working on a new Client/Server SOAP system to allow this.
The first program to include this will be Bluetrait 2.1.
The ultimate goal (with Bluetrait anyway) is to be able to push users/posts etc to client sites. The client sites will also be able to push information back to the Server, such as events from the event viewer.
I've decided on using SOAP as I have used it before with a .NET mobile application and it seems to work well.
For the SOAP class I will be using NuSOAP, but it is possible that I could use the built in PHP5 class (although then you need to make sure the extension is installed).
I've made public the search plugin I wrote for this site.
It can be downloaded from here and is under the "Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.5 License".
The plugin requires Bluetrait 2 and MySQL.
It probably won't be any use to anyone as Bluetrait 2 isn't even in Beta yet ;)
After hacking my ipod, I installed Apache and PHP. I was successfully able to install the sqlite version of Bluetrait 2 onto my ipod!
There were some small bugs, I haven't yet pin-pointed them down yet but I believe it may have been due to the setup of PHP.
So yeah that was pretty cool, pointless but cool :)
