Charm is a full-featured, cross-platfom blogging client for LiveJournal, Atom (Movable Type, Blogger), and MetaWeb (WordPress). It is console-based, all-text, and can be used entirely from the command line. It is written in Python.

Charm Web Site


  • Charm is an entirely text-based client. Consequently, its system and hardware requirements are negligible; you just need something that supports the Python interpreter.
  • Charm has equal facility across a broad spectrum of blogging platforms. It has full-fledged support for LiveJournal-based sites, but it also supports the Atom API (for Blogger) and the MetaWeb API (for Wordpress, Movable Type, and so on). Atom support requires that you have the Feedparse module from installed.
  • Charm contains four major utilities in a single client: menu-driven posting/editing, "quick" command-line posting, archival, and friends-checking.
  • Normal, menu-driven mode. Charm uses menus of single-letter commands, and is thus easy to use. There's a full array of post and edit options.
  • "Quick" mode. Command-line-only, reading the body of the post from stdin. This allows very fast posting for casual use. But it also allows input to be piped to a post or taken from an arbitrary file, for filter-like uses. Thus, you could take some text, pipe it to the Enchefferizer (the "Swedish chef" text converter), or to a text-to-HTML converter like Markdown or Textile, and that pipe that to Charm for posting to your journal.
