Blogger Technical View PPT

  1. 1. Blogger By : Chinmay Mahajan
  2. 2. History  On August 23, 1999, Blogger was launched by Pyra Labs. As one of the earliest dedicated blog-publishing tools, it is credited for helping popularize the format.  In February 2003, Pyra Labs was acquired by Google under undisclosed terms. The acquisition allowed premium features (for which Pyra had charged) to become free.  In October 2004, Pyra Labs' co-founder, Evan Williams, left Google. In 2004, Google purchased Picasa; it integrated Picasa and its photo sharing utility Hello into Blogger, allowing users to post photos to their blogs.  On May 9, 2004, Blogger introduced a major redesign, adding features such as web standards-compliant templates, individual archive pages for posts, comments, and posting by email.
  3. 3. Redesign In September 2009, Google introduced new features into Blogger as part of its tenth anniversary celebration.  Adding location to posts via geotagging.  Post time-stamping at publication, not at original creation.  Vertical re-sizing of the post editor. The size is saved in a peruser, per-blog preference.  Link editing in Compose mode.  Full Safari 3 support and fidelity on both Windows and Mac OS.  New Preview dialog that shows posts in a width and font size approximating what is seen in the published view.  Placeholder image for tags so that embeds are movable in Compose mode.  New toolbar with Google aesthetics, faster loading time, and "undo" and "redo" buttons. Also added was the full justification button, a strike-through button, and an expanded color palette.
  4. 4. Available designs  Blogger allows its users to choose from various templates available, and fully customize them. Users may also choose to create their own templates using CSS. The new design template, known as Dynamic View, was introduced recently. It is built with AJAX, HTML5 and CSS3.  In April 2013 Blogger updated its HTML template editor that has some improvements to make it easy for the users to edit the source code of the blog. The editor was updated with syntax highlight, number line and jump to widget button for ease of editing the code.
