New MT Plugin

By Deane Barker on July 18, 2003

GetXML Plugin for Movable Type – Very interesting plugin for Movable Type. This would let you extend MT with arbitrary data stored as XML somewhere. It might be a hassle for every entry, but I’m running into a problem with this site whereby I’d like to store about six pieces of information for each category. This could do it.

“This Movable Type plugin implements a set of template tags for retrieving data in XML format and displaying the data on your MT-generated pages. It’s basically a Movable Type interface to the extremely handy XML::Simple Perl module. The plugin will work with any well-formed XML document that can be retrieved via an HTTP GET request.”
