Adobe’s Bee

I got a laptop for Christmas and have been getting it setup. I decided to look for a good way to blog offline so that I could work on a post during lunch when I don’t have an internet connection and then load it when I get home. It looks like there are a lot of solutions out there, but I think i’ve settled on Bee from Adobe Labs. I’m testing this post with a connection but I’ve made some notes on setting up a new laptop that I’ll test offline later. Bee is simple and powerful and also supports flickr. For WordPress you put in your blog address (be sure to use /wordpress if that’s where your installation is) then add your user and password and Bee will sync your exsisting posts so that you can edit them offline. If you are online the flickr ‘Photoview’ makes it easy to add one of your pictures or search for a public picture to add to your post. A search for Bee gave me a nice selection of pictures, clicking the blog button on a picture adds it to your post automatically like so:

Very slick, makes me want to write all my posts here instead of from the admin console. If you have a WordPress blog then I highly recommend trying it out, even if you aren’t planning on working offline. Since Bee is a sample project from Adobe Labs you can download the source as well, always a bonus. Do you any tools for offline blogging?

    I've been using ScribeFire for offline blogging but have been irritated by the re-formatting that I need to do when I post it back. I think I'll try this for, at least to give it a go.

    I use Bee too. I like using the offline software for a couple of reasons: No internet reliance, easy to publish images and videos, no waiting for browsers to load, and it's easy to publish multiple blogs.

    I like it!

    Sounds like a great tool, too bad there's no reference to it on the Adobe Labs site.
    I googled it but didn't come up with much. Could you point in the right direction?
