Command-Line blog posts
So, it only seems fitting that I should talk about a command-line interface to posting on this blog. No, I do not mean using links or the like, but a way to post from the command line.
A brief summary of its commands are bellow:
-c category, can be a list separated by commas, no spaces -t title -i description, main body of post, if it has a slash, it is interpreted as a file to slurp like a text or html file -D iso formatted date for post, can be left out -T if there are image attachments, place them as thumbnails only, with link, not just resized
Some usage examples taken from the man page:
Most basic of usage, (provided you have a ~/.wppost file) wppost -t 'hi everyone' -i 'i just wanted to say hello' If you want to specify two different categories: wppost -t 'Another Apple' -i 'Apples are really great. I do love them so.' -c food,rant -D 20071231 If the body of the post is in a file wppost -t 'title here' -i ./content.txt If the content of the post is in a file and you want to use the file name as the title wppost -i ./Title_Here.txt If you want to have file attachments: wppost -t 'recent photos' -i 'these are recent pictures i took' ./*jpg
Pretty cool, huh?
