WordPress Comment Plugin for Indic Languages

Last few days I have been reading more books, coding more scriptlets than twittering or blogging here. I am yet to decide on coffee project of this month. I might send it to Wikimedia Foundation as I don't have any other project in my mind.

Two weeks back I was at Google Developer Day (First one in India) and was introduced to Indic API.  Since then I was thinking about writing *something* using Indic API. Yesterday i wrote a small plugin for wordpress called Google Transliteration Comment Plugin. By installing this plugin your readers can comment in English as well as in few Indian languages. You will have to use ctrl+G for toggling between English and the language you have chosen.  Of course there is another plugin for admins to write post. Few parts of my plugin are inspired from it.

Go ahead install Indic comments plugin. You might find problems with some themes. But it should work with all the standard themes. If you face any problem, IM me. I will try my best to help you.

    Thanks for this plugin.

    Is it possible for you to write an application to download books from Digital Library of India in PDF format.
