1: You can read what Bookie is <a href="purpose.html">here</a>, but here's the
2: long and short of it:
5: Bookie is an application which keeps all your bookmarks on a
6: central server so that you can access bookmarks from anywhere on the web.
9: <p>I have a server which is currently using a hacked up protocol based on FTP.
10: I have since learned why no-one uses a protocol from the 1970's if they can
11: help it: the code is going to go away and be replaced with XML-RPC, which is
12: both simpler and more intelligent.
14: <p>Mozilla client is still very rudimentary, but it does do XML-RPC queries.
15: If you enjoy pain or would like to help, then you can pick up the code from
16: clients/mozilla/extensions/bookie/resources (I know it's a long URL, I'm
17: trying to keep it synced with the mozilla codebase) and copy the directories
18: into your dist/bin/chrome/bookie directory. I will see if I can wrap it
19: into an XPInstall script for easier access. Thanks to Aaron Andersen for
20: the cool <a href="http://www.xulplanet.com/tutorials/xulapp/">tutorial</a>.
22: <p>You do have to have the XML-RPC extensions. Go to your
23: mozilla/extensions/xml-rpc directory and <code>"nmake -f
24: makefile.win"</code> should take care of the problem.
