Running WordPress on MobileMe / dot Mac

UPDATE: The plugin has now been released, please find it here:
WordPress HTML Static Plugin
Apple’s MobileMe/.Mac service offers web hosting along with email and file storage.
There is currently(Jan, 2009) no user support for PHP or other server-side technologies.
For many Mac fanboys who want to install WordPress this has always been dissappointing.
Until now (maybe)…
Here is a workaround I am attempting right now. I am attempting to:

  • Run WP on a local server
  • Use permalinks with .html extension
  • Avoid categories
  • Automagically rip and publish my local site to my MobileMe webspace

Wish me luck!
