Welcome to metamake, a weblog system based on make. This probably isn't usable by anyone but extreme geeks, but here it is if you're interested.
cd /path/to/weblog git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:aaronsw/metamake.git code
- singlepage.tmpl is the template for the entry page
- conf/indexes lets you list index templates (RSS, index.html, etc.), e.g.: rss.tmpl rss.xml index.tmpl index.html
Templates are standard Cheetah templates with variables file (filename), title, body (converted using Markdown), and date (creation date). The multi-entry templates have these inside a list named entries.
$ cat > _postname.txt # The Truth About Purple Through copious research I have discovered that purple is not really a color. Call Dan Rather! ^D $ echo postname >> list $ make
The first time the Makefile won't exist yet, so you'll have to run:
python code/metamake.py > Makefile
