BBEdit to Movable Type

I wrote this entry using my new BBEdit to Movable Type script, a combination of AppleScript and Perl. I am using AppleScript to get the weblog information from the keychain and the text from BBEdit. Then the Perl script uses Net::MovableType to post a new entry.

I cannot seem to be able to get Unicode text from BBEdit, though. I also need to improve the user interface. A barber pole window would be nice, as well as a fallback in case the information is missing from the keychain (I see an AppleScript Studio application coming). I don’t know if I’m going to allow to change settings and categories from the script as well or just make it open the entry editing page in Safari.
