Is there any way to use Windows Live Writer with a SharePoint 2010 wiki?

It should be possible by using the MetaWeblogAPI that hooks into SharePoint 2010, as per http://www.codeproject.com/KB/XML/MetaWeblogAPI.aspx http://www.hanselman.com/blog/TheWeeklySourceCode55NotABlogALocalXMLRPCMetaWebLogEndpointThatLiesToWindowsLiveWriter.aspx

I think that Live Writer still doesn't work with SharePoint Wikis directly. There are some rather unpleasant workarounds in this old thread http://stackoverflow.com/questions/11462/sharepoint-wikis if you want to give them a try.

p.s. I found that with a quick Bing. I knew it was out there somewhere, but still...

You are right: Live Writer does not work with wikis but with SharePoint blogs... Is there any 3rd party that build such an API for wikis? –  Peter Gfader May 14 '11 at 10:23

I seem to recall that some folks will use Live Writer to publish things to a "dummy blog" and snarf the html to post into wikis. I know we've talked about that over on Stump the Panel before. –  PirateEric May 14 '11 at 12:13
