Guilty.  I wrote another blogging engine.  This one's command-line based and only for those willing to get HTML on their shirt.  Writing a post looks like this:

  1. bin/new "This is the post's title"
  2. Write the post in the file it gives you
  3. bin/preview path/to/the/post
  4. Check it out in your favorite browser
  5. bin/publish path/to/the/post

I rolled my own because I rather like the command line and rather dislike being h4x0red.  It has a script to import a Wordpress blog, so you can come and play, too.  The source is on GitHub.

Go ahead and make fun of me for spending my free time on this.  I hope it'll make me write more (I hated Wordpress' WYSIWYG editor, even in HTML mode).

  1. I hate Wordpress' WYSIWYG editor as well, but I do admit that I like plentiful plugins that are available.

    I love the idea of being able to publish through command line so I will eventually be giving this a try.

  2. And here's the keyboard he uses to do all this:

  4. Blosxom, dude. FTP a text file with the title in the first line → new blog post! (This sounds good too, though.)
