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!
