Testing Windows Live Writer Plugins

I recently installed Microsoft Windows Live Writer in order to enable offline/desktop content creation for my blog hosted at WordPress.com So far Live Writer has exceeded my expectations by far, simply put, it is awesome. The user interface is very similar to the familiar Microsoft Office product suite user interface.

Windows Live Writer Screenshot

From Wikipedia: “It features WYSIWYG authoring, photo-publishing and map-publishing functionality, and is currently compatible with Windows Live Spaces, SharePoint blogs, Blogger, LiveJournal, TypePad, WordPress, Telligent Community, PBlogs.gr, JournalHome, the MetaWeblog API, the Movable Type API, Blogengine, Squarespace, and all blogs that support RSD (Really Simple Discoverability). “

I have started playing around with Windows Live Writer plugins, as I discover plugins I’ll write a blog entry if I find a plugin to be impressive. In addition I have also started looking at the Live Writer API. If inspiration strikes I will attempt creating my own Live Writer Plugin.

Convert to Roman Numerals Widget

I’ve created a new WolframAlpha widget! This is my first widget created from scratch. It’s amazing how quick/easy it is to develop widgets from scratch using WolframAlpha’s developer tools. This widget is nothing complicated, but still usefull. Use this widget to convert regular numbers to roman numerals. You can try it out here
