Drivel 2 Rocks! (a.k.a My First, Rather, Techie Post)

(taken from:

Drivel is a GNOME client for working with online journals, also known as weblogs or simply blogs. It retains a simple and elegant design while providing many powerful features, including:

  • Support for LiveJournal, Blogger, MovableType, Advogato, and Atom journals (systems based off these are also supported, including WordPress and Drupal)
  • The ability to post, edit, delete, and view recent entries
    Integrated spellchecking and HTML syntax highlighting
  • Offline composition and editing
  • Automatic recovery in the event of a crash
  • Journal system extensions, including LiveJournal security groups and MovableType categories


    If you're using Ubuntu (or Debian or any deb-based distro (i suppose) ), get the deb file from here.

    PROs: (based on my use)
  • It absolutely rocks!
  • It allows me to post, update and delete without ever having to go through site, at least not directly.
  • It's a nifty, all-in-one thingamabob thingie.

    CONs: (based on my use)
  • It doesn't support LJ tags, just yet. (But it's in the works.)
  • It doesn't seem to support Blogspot titles (or maybe I haven't figured it out yet?)
