OpenACS to Typo

I’m fiddling with an OpenACS lars-blogger to Typo converter, because I need to have my blog running Typo by Monday.



Has anyone done this already?



UPDATE: I completed it, and it turns out it wasn’t that bad. Ironically, it was much much easier than the upgrade from OpenACS 4.6 to OpenACS 5.0. Why? Because the queries for getting stuff out of the database, you can just grab from the pages, or even the error log. But inserting into the OpenACS database is a pain with multiple inserts across several tables. Much easier in Rails, where you have ActiveRecord making it trivial.

Looks like they accept RSS for import. That seems like the easiest route here since you can just fiddle with the existing RSS handler, or write something that exports all the posts into RSS.

Yeah, I thought about that, but what about the comments?
