Project Idea: XML-RPC desktop client/debugger
— Paul Annesley, August 2006
While working with XML-RPC in PHP, I've been frustrated that the only desktop debugging client I could find was the XML-RPC Client for Mac, which doesn't do me much good in Windows.
I'm going to try and find time to have a go at building such a tool for Windows, either as a Java application or a XUL Firefox Extension - neither of which I have ever written a useful application with.
Some things to consider would be support for HTTP cookies, support for json-rpc as well as XML-RPC, and perhaps a plugin interface to allow addons which are useful for more than just adhoc debugging.
