Our implementation of the MetaWeblog API for MSN Spaces is now publicly available. You can use the API to create, edit and delete blog posts on your space. The following blogging applications either currently work with our implementation of the MetaWeblog API or will in their next release

  1. W.Bloggar
  2. Blogjet
  3. Ecto
  4. Zoundry
  5. Qumana
  6. Onfolio
  7. Elicit
  8. PostXING
  9. Pocket Blogger
  10. Diarist - PocketPC

I have also provided a pair of tutorials for managing your MSN Spaces blog using desktop blogging tools, one on using Blogjet to manage your MSN Spaces blog and the other on using W.Bloggar to manage your blog on MSN Spaces.

The following information is for developers who would like to build applications that programmatically interact with MSN Spaces.

Supported Blogger and MetaWeblog API methods:

  • metaWeblog.newPost (blogid, username, password, struct, publish) returns string
  • metaWeblog.editPost (postid, username, password, struct, publish) returns boolean
  • metaWeblog.getPost (postid, username, password) returns struct
  • metaWeblog.getCategories (blogid, username, password) returns array of structs
  • metaWeblog.getRecentPosts (blogid, username, password, numberOfPosts) returns array of structs
  • blogger.deletePost(appkey, postid, username, password, publish) returns boolean
  • blogger.getUsersBlogs(appkey, username, password) returns array of structs
  • blogger.getUserInfo(appkey, username, password) returns struct

Unsupported MetaWeblog API methods:

  • metaWeblog.newMediaObject (blogid, username, password, struct) returns struct

NOTE: The appKey parameter used by the deletePost, getUsersBlogs and getUserInfo method is ignored. MSN Spaces will not require an application key to utilize its APIs.

Expect to see more information about the MetaWeblog API for MSN Spaces on http://msdn.microsoft.com/msn shortly. We also will be providing a forum to discuss the APIs for MSN Spaces at http://forums.microsoft.com/msdn in the next few days. If you have questions about using the API or suggestions about other APIs you would like to see, either respond to this blog entry or send me mail at dareo AT microsoft DOT com.

Cool!
Unfortunately I just found out today that the plug is being pulled on my free hosting tomorrow, so that link for Diarist will become invalid...but I'll be arranging some proper hosting very shortly and post the details on my blog, at which time I'll also post a version that includes MSN Spaces as a built-in menu option (easier than entering the endpoint manually with the generic option).

At the present time, it doesn't appear that two way discussions is a particular strength of Microsoft:

Well, whenever you get the info out I will test and release. Just waiting for the info on MSDN!
Tuesday, December 13, 2005 2:40:41 AM (GMT Standard Time, UTC+00:00)
Hey, nevermind, I just saw the URL's in the demo posts you have there and got it to work. Ill be releasing soon - thanks again !
Tuesday, December 13, 2005 8:42:49 AM (GMT Standard Time, UTC+00:00)
I try to enter the url for my msn space in flickr :
https://storage.msn.com/storageservice/MetaWeblog.rpc (and I try also http)

user : matthieu, password: the word for email publishing

But I've this error : The endpoint you entered was not correct.
Tuesday, December 13, 2005 2:29:14 PM (GMT Standard Time, UTC+00:00)
Matthieu,
Questions about Flickr are probably best addressed by the Flickr tech support folks. The API works with a dozen tools and existing XML-RPC libraries thus I doubt the problem is with our implementation.
Tuesday, December 13, 2005 7:00:25 PM (GMT Standard Time, UTC+00:00)
Dare, Before to ask Flick support I would like to be sure that the url and settings are correct. I assume that they are ?
Tuesday, December 13, 2005 7:12:54 PM (GMT Standard Time, UTC+00:00)
Are there plans for supporting RSD a.k.a. really simple discovery for tool vendors? It woul dmake a lot of lives a lot easier ;-)
Tuesday, December 13, 2005 8:25:37 PM (GMT Standard Time, UTC+00:00)
Matthieu,
That is the right URL and settings.

Jason,
We plan to support RSD in an upcoming release.
Friday, April 7, 2006 4:36:56 PM (GMT Daylight Time, UTC+01:00)
Does this is still working??
I've been trying with qumana, blogjet, wbloggar and i can't connect to my space...
I thought that the configuration is right, but still doesn't connect...i don't know what is wrong...
Thanks for your answer

Ps. Sorry for my english, i'm still learning...
