Yeah, so the program runs just fine, but it seems a little silly to clog up the blogosphere (do people still use that term?) with such nonsense, so I’ll limit this to this, and just have it mailed to me instead. Seems more polite, really, doesn’t it?

  1. Hi,

    I found this through a google search when looking for help with seminary greek 101. Is your code available by any chance?

    Thanks, Karla

    • Karla:

      Not really. That is, I have no objection to sharing it, but it is a little “messy”. It was not written for others to use and was really only a personal exercise for me in programmatic interaction with WP at a time when I thought I would read the GNT (managed 1st John). By “messy” I mean it is not “self contained” it relies on chron jobs, various online log-ins and accounts, and the scraping of sites as they existed back then. It’s written in Ruby, BTW.

      If you are still really interested, send mail to kword@yearl.us and we’ll see. I’d only ask that if you make any changes and pass on the code to someone else, that you follow the

  2. […] Posting to WordPress is pretty straightforward. All the heavy lifting is done by the rubypress gem, which makes this sort of thing doggone simple (see what I did there!). Here a block of code from that thing I wrote a while ago that scraped a Koine Greek “Word of the Day” from Ἡ Καινὴ Διαθήκη. Last post here […]
