We wrote our own commenting system and wanted to extract all of our comments for all our page back out of JSKit.

Some code and notes here written in C# and here it is (notes are a few months old so I am just getting around to putting them up, sorry.) Note: Dont pound on the JSKit servers as

If you have comments in JKit one item that you might have noticed is that you can't get your data back so I put together this little bit of .Net code that will help. The dataformat across the web is JSON and this regular expression will parse it out for you.

wwHttp() is a bit of code that you can find here..One addition... Change the Encoding from 1252 to 65001 to support UTF-8 extended languages like Russian and one other thing... Create a app.config file with the following data (needed for running this code on a Win2k3 box)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<httpWebRequest useUnsafeHeaderParsing="true"/>

There is some date calculation as well.. This should help

DateTime d1;

double test = 0;

string exacttime = "";

d1 = new DateTime(1970, 1, 1);

test = 1171898391;

test = test * 1000;

d1 = d1.AddMilliseconds(test);

exacttime = d1.ToShortDateString() + " " + d1.ToLongTimeString();

string getDataFor = System.Web.HttpUtility.UrlEncode("");

string URL = "" + getDataFor;

string regex = @"{sID:.*?status:s'(.*?)'.*?Name:s'(.*?)'.*?Text:s'(.*?)'.*?}";

System.Text.RegularExpressions.RegexOptions options = ((System.Text.RegularExpressions.RegexOptions.IgnorePatternWhitespace | System.Text.RegularExpressions.RegexOptions.Singleline)

| System.Text.RegularExpressions.RegexOptions.IgnoreCase);

System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex reg = new System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex(regex, options);

wwHttp loHttp = new wwHttp();

//loHttp.ProxyAddress = "";

string testtxt = loHttp.GetUrl(URL);

testtxt = testtxt.Replace("\'","&apos;"); Fixes single quote problem in regexp

//string testtxt = " var data = [{ ID: 'jsid-1174938750-0', yours: true, status: 'A', TS: 1174938750, Name: 'Kevin', Text: 'I like this? URL Changed and the comment was lost though...'} ,";

foreach( System.Text.RegularExpressions.Match m in reg.Matches(testtxt))


string cStaus = m.Groups[1].Value; // cStaus = "A" is the only good one...

string cName = m.Groups[2].Value;

string cComment = m.Groups[3].Value;

string stopme2 = "";
