Print

Any response can be turned into a PDF file. Just add the print argument to your command.

$ pastrybox today print
$ pastrybox day 21-10-2012 print
$ pastrybox from 21-10-2012 to 21-11-2012 print
$ pastrybox baker erin-kissane print
...

To print all the content published on the The Pastry Box, just do:

$ pastrybox print

To extract our database in a JSON format, just do:

$ pastrybox

PDF files are always created in the current working directory.

File names

By default, a .pdf file is named based on the following scheme: pastrybox-$timestamp.pdf

You can override this behavior by specifying your own file name:

$ pastrybox today print file "today.pdf"
$ pastrybox day 21-10-2012 print file super-thought.pdf
$ pastrybox from 21-10-2012 to 21-11-2012 print file "cool-stuff"
...

As you can see, you can ommit the .pdf file extension. It will automatically be added. Double quotes are also optional.

Archives

$ pastrybox archives $year

Specify a year, and you will download all the content published on the Pastry Box for that year on your computer (in the current working directory, to be more specific). The result of archiving a year will look exactly like the archives we have on GitHub.
