Jekyll is missing an import script to import blog entries from Typepad, and I couldn't find anything related on the Internet. Well, I searched for less than 5 minutes, then I thought it'd be quicker to do itmyself. So here we are.
typepad_to_jekyll is a script to import blog entries previously exported from typepad.
typepad_to_jekyll imports typepad blog entries (not the comments) from typepad into your jekyll directory,
and a platform where it runs.
So that's pretty generic.
You also need a jekyll directory. But if you don't have that, I don't know why you are bothering anyway...
- Log on typepad.com, go to your typepad blog admin page, then in the Settings tab
- Click on Import/Export pane (bottom left),
and export your blog.
It should produce a
txtfile, called something like
- Download the file and rename it to,
- run typepad_to_jekyll like this :
perl ./typepad_to_jekyll path/to/typepad_export.txt path/to/jekyll/directory
- that's it !
