       logjam - GTK+ client for LiveJournal


       logjam [OPTIONS] [FILE]


       logjam is a GTK+ client for LiveJournal-based sites such as

       Aside from writing entries, logjam lets you modify your friends list,
       edit your previous entries, and more.

       When run with no arguments (or just username option), logjam will run
       in the GUI mode.  The user interface is mostly self-explanatory, and
       won't be discussed here in detail, except for a few notes below.


       Options can be given in either short or long forms. For help on a
       particular commands, type "logjam COMMAND help". For example, "logjam
       grep help" will supply help about the grep command.

             -v, --version
               Show version of program.
             -q, --quiet
               Say less.

             -u, --username=USERNAME
               Username to operate as.
             -p, --password=PASSWORD
               Password for the current user.
             -a, --postas=USERNAME
               User/community to post as.

             -f, --file=FILE
               File to load.
             -e, --edit
               Use default editor to edit post.

             checkfriends  Efficiently check friends list for updates.
             console       Run a command on the LiveJournal console.
             post          Post event immediately.
             offline       Manage offline copies of your journal.
             user          Manage user list.

       Also, GTK+ command line options (such as --display) can be used.


       This section describes some of the GUI features that aren't immediately

   Check Friends
       logjam can monitor your friends list and notify you when new entries
       are posted there. Enable this by right-clicking on the indicator at the
       bottom-left corner of the application window and selecting the
       appropriate menu item. You may also configure logjam to start doing
       this automatically for you when you login. When new entries are
       detected, the indicator will turn red to let you know; click it to
       resume monitoring or double-click it to open your browser on your
       friends page. Optionally, you can have logjam open a small "floating"
       indicator which has some useful GUI settings of its own.

       Owners of large friends lists may prefer to be notified only after they
       accumulate several new posts. You may set the threshold for this in the
       Check Friends settings tab. The default is 1, that is, logjam will tell
       you immediately when it detects new traffic on your friends page. There
       is a small limit on the maximum threshold allowed, because this feature
       is only useful with small threshold values.


       When given a FILE argument, logjam will start up with an existing file
       as the base for the composed entry. If the filename given is "-", the
       data will be read from standard input. Several aspects of the entry,
       such as its subject field and the journal in which to post it to, can
       be controlled by other options. This is useful in conjunction with the
       --commandline option, which causes logjam to post an entry without
       going to GUI mode, allowing completely non-interactive posts. If you do
       wish to interactively edit the entry, but don't want to load the GUI,
       use the --edit option.

       logjam will periodically save a draft of your currently edited entry in
       ~/.logjam/draft if you turn on the draft option in the Preferences
       dialog. This feature is intended for crash recovery, not archiving. If
       you want to keep a copy of your posts, you should use the
       Entry > Save As menu option before submitting them. A future version of
       logjam will support archiving of your journal.

       Please note that when you exit the client normally, your draft is
       cleared. It does not "stick" for the next invocation, as in the
       behavior of some other clients.

   Checking friends from the command line
       You can use logjam as a backend for a script or another application
       that wishes to check the friends view. This may be useful if you don't
       want to use the GUI, or if you have several journals (in conjunction
       with --username). To do this, invoke logjam once with
       --checkfriends=purge (-rpurge if you're using short options), and then
       something like:

               logjam --checkfriends && new-entries-handler

       Make sure that your script or application purges the checkfriends
       status as described above once the user has acknowledged the new items,
       otherwise logjam will always report there's nothing new.  You should
       also pay attention to limiting your query rate, despite the fact that
       logjam will refuse to flood the server with queries.  For more
       information, see the messages on the command line. (To suppress these
       messages, use --quiet.)
