Feature Request - Full AtomPub Capability (IBM Connections)
  • I currently use MarsEdit for my Blogs, but I see that it has the potential to be used to edit practically anything in IBM Connections because its primary API is AtomPub. At a minimum, I would LOVE it if I could edit Wikis in MarsEdit because that would be a huge benefit to my workflow with local saves until I'm ready to release Wiki updates.

    IBM connections has many different "applications", and if ME could be configured to connect to a "site" rather than an individual Blog, I would be able to use it as my primary IBM Connections Editor. This would make it unique among all software that I am aware of on OS X, Windows, and Linux. The only thing that even comes close is the Mobile Connections application developed and released by IBM.

    You can read all about the Connections APIs at the following link:


  • Hi Dave - I will put it on my TODO list to read up a bit more on the IBM Connections API. In the mean time, do you happen to know if the various asset-types of a site in IBM Connections are advertised in a single "Service Document" for the site?
  • Hi Daniel,

    Sorry for the delay. Unfortunately, I did not find anything searching through the documentation for the API and I am not aware of a single Service Document. The best I could find was on the "Getting Started" page: http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/lcwiki.nsf/dx/Getting_started_ic301, but I didn't see anything that listed a single service document like you might expect to find from the root URL.

    I found an IBM RedBook on "Customising IBM Connections" at http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/lcwiki.nsf/dx/9.1_Overview_of_the_IBM_Connections_API, that you may also find useful. This Redbook also has a page just for Blogs that you may find useful: http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/lcwiki.nsf/dx/9.5_Working_with_Blog_postings_and_comments (java).

    That's the best I can come up with. If I had to pick two apps for you to target (besides blogs) it would be Wikis and Files.
