Recent Blog Posts

This JavaScript application displays the ten most recent posts on three of my Blogger blogs. It's a variation of my Random Blog Posts page. This page removes the randomisation step, and simply fetches the ten most recent blog posts.

Both the Random Blog Posts page and this page borrow and extend code from the FTP blogs version of the "Blogger Feeling Lucky" script. They work by loading scripts from Blogger's site that return JSON objects and calls to a function defined on this page. Refer to the phydeaux3 blog post for more information on how it works.

Tested with Safari and Firefox on Mac OS X. Unfortunately this script does not seem to work with Opera. According to Browsershots, the page works with Internet Explorer (versions 6.0 and later), Firefox, and Safari on Windows.

[Originally released on 08-Jun-2008. Updated to use new Blogger JSON structure on 22-Dec-2008.]
