Automatically Posting Del.icio.us Links to Your WordPress Blog

I made a quick Python script to do this for me. Here’s an example of what it makes.

Sure there are plenty of scripts and plugins out there that do just this:
http://nozell.com/blog/2005/01/30/updated-yet-another-daily-delicious-hack/
http://heisel.org/projects
http://theory.isthereason.com/?p=499
http://autoblogger.sourceforge.net/

But I had to make my own because I wanted these exact features:

  1. Only make a blog post after N new Del.icio.us links have accumulated.
  2. Generate Technorati tags/links at the end of the post automatically.
  3. Generally have everything work exactly how I want it to ;-)



Download the script here:
autopost_delicious.tar.bz2

Requires:
FeedParser
WordPressLib

Instructions:
Put it somewhere out of the way on your own computer and schedule it to run every day or so. Fill in the user settings section too of course. It should also work if you put it on your web server and schedule it to run from there (crontab, etc).

I don’t promise it will be useful to anyone but me, but if it is please let me know. And I’d be happy to make it more general purpose if anyone is interested.
