Ignoring the cloddy ambiguous meaning of the title I’m happy to announce two new plugins for Serendipity. As you can read in the forum (1, 2) and watch in the sidebar of my weblog, I’d written two new plugins for Serendipity. The first one, »Flickr badge«, displays your last images from Flickr in your sidebar. It uses the
serialize()/unserialize()-based API provided by Flickr which is very easy to use with PHP. The other plugin displays the album, which was on »Heavy Rotation« in the last week. It uses your Last.fm-account to retrieve these information and Amazon to find an appropriate cover. You can find both plugins in the CVS-repository for Serendipity (1, 2) or install them via Spartacus. Please take care that you need at least PHP 5.1 to use this plugins as I decided to use the wonderful OOP-model of PHP 5.
To adduce my own release README:
»An online-wishlist is a daily tool nowadays. It is used to track and publish wishes to relatives, friends and weblog readers. The usual variant is Amazon’s wishlist implementation. There are a few reasons why to prefer an independent solution to fullfill this need: On the one hand Amazon lacks a lot of products which are offered elsewhere and there is no need to organize such a thing centrally. And, not to forget, there is no newsfeed at all on amazon.com.«You can checkout PhpWishList via SVN. Please consider this at least as a pre-release. There are some glitches, lot of comments are missing in the source files but enjoy what’s there. For installation support consult the README or ask here or via jabber or mail. There is no license listed in any of my source files. If I find time, I will add the link and relevant text to mark it as GPL-software (of course!).
