This article is oriented towards plugin authors. It explains how you can use plugin options in combinations with the Nucleus parser functions in order to allow easy templating of the plugin-generated output.
Note that this article is actually sort of a draft. I started to write it exactly 2 months ago, and I have a feeling that it will never get finished, so I'm publishing it as-is. The most important part of the article, the sample code, can be found here: NewsFeed and NewsFeed_Parser plugins. They're both unfinished and not compatible with other versions of the plugin. Their implementation also slightly differs from what's in the code samples below.

This article is a quick introduction to how the Nucleus XML-RPC server works. Such an XML-RPC server is basically a PHP script that accepts an XML request, performs some actions and then answers in XML as well.
(Since a draft version of this article has been on my desktop for over a month, I decided to just dump it here.)

I'm posting this message to let you know I'm still alive :) While this blog has been neglected somewhat over the past few weeks, it does not mean that Nucleus development has stalled. Behind the scenes, lots of activity is taking place.
You could also look at it in this way: less blogging means more time to work on Nucleus :)
