VimWordpress is a Python 3 plugin for Vim to manage Wordpress (incl. wordpress.com) blogs. As of 2016, other vim plugins lack the support of Python 3, which motivates the development of the VimWordpress plugin.
- Vim 8+ with Python 3.3+ support (Python 2 support is dropped)
- Python 3 Environment matched wtih Vim's support ("has(python3)" return 1 in vim)
- python-markdown/python-markdown2 installed (execute "pip install markdown2" in shell)
- Wordpress 3.0.0 +
- Replaced SafeConfigParser with ConfigParser per deprecation requirement for Python 3.2+
- Fixed an issue in BlogOpen
- Use Vundle to add mrpeterlee/VimWordpress to the Plugin source. Plugin 'mrpeterlee/VimWordpress'
- Create a ~/.vimpressrc file, and put the following in it
[Blog0] blog_url = https://yoursite.com/ username = your_user_name password = your_password
Some commands list above contain special usage, example below may clearify them for you.
:BlogList - List 30 recent posts. :BlogList page - List 30 recent pages. :BlogList post 100 - List 100 recent posts. :BlogNew post - Write an new post. :BlogNew page - Write an new page. :BlogSave - Save (default to published). :BlogSave draft - Save as draft. :BlogPreview local - Preview page/post locally in your browser. :BlogPreview publish - Same as `:BlogSave publish' with brower opened. :BlogOpen 679 :BlogOpen http://your-first-blog.com/archives/679 :BlogOpen http://your-second-blog.com/?p=679 :BlogOpen http://your-third-blog.com/with-your-custom-permalink
A few shortcuts was recommended in VimBlog for day-to-day blogging:
From the shell I launch these two character shortcuts to begin blogging immediately.
alias nb="vim +BlogNew" alias eb="vim +BlogList"
Once inside Vim I can run these.
nnoremap <leader>b :BlogSave publish<CR> nnoremap <leader>h :set ft=HTML<CR><CR>
Default to publish as "private"
Wordpress defines three types of posting: "draft", "private", "public", and VimWordpress defaults to "private" after ":BlogSave".
