Go Blog Go!
A go version of my stupid blog script
This is billo's crappy blog publishing platform
- write Markdown files with a .txt extension.
- Arrange them in a directory structure YYYY/MM
- create a CSS file header and footer shtml files
- enable apache server side includes to parse .shtml files
- run this script
I've updated the program to use a Go implementation of Markdown (blackfriday). Forking and execing Perl, a complete repub of myown blog of about 500 articles took about 15 seconds. With the native implementation it takes 0.12 seconds. Yay.
blogdir: this is where the .txt (Markdown) files should live masterdir: this is where some static boilerplate include files are
Files needed in blogdir. These are not altered by the script:
index.shtml: this is not touched by the update script. header.shtml: when the script creates pages, this is the top chunk footer.shtml: when the script creates pages, this is the bottom chunk footerbar.shtml: visible contents of the footer on all pages monthheader.shtml: for the generated monthly index, this file is the top chunk monthfooter.shtml: for the generated monthly index, this file is the bottom chunk feed/index.shtml: the shell of the RSS feed
Files needed in masterdir:
monthindex.shtml: This is the master template for each generated index.shtml in the month folders tweet.shtml: this includes the "tweet" button which is placed at the top of the archive index.
files generated by this script:
blogdir/sidebar.shtml - this is the top level index of all the months where there is a post blogdir/contents.shtml = top level meat middle section of the main index file blogdir/feed/items.ihtml - the RSS feed items blogdir/YYYY/MM/contents.shtml - the contents of each month index page blogdir/YYYY/MM/index.shtml - the index page of each month
