Utilities for transitioning to Armstrong from Wordpress
This is development level software. Please do not unless you are familiar with what that means and are comfortable using that type of software.
armstrong.utils.importers.wordpress imports Wordpress xml export files into an armstrong installation. The importer assumes that the database is empty except for whatever may have been added during a syncdb. The importer will create armstrong.apps.articles.models.Article objects for each post and django.contrib.flatpages.models.FlatPage objects for each page object.
To run the importer, navigate to the root of the project you want to import into and run armstrong import_wp /path/to/your/export.xml. The command accepts a --dryrun parameter that doesn't actually alter the database.
name="armstrong.utils.importers.wordpress" pip install -e git://github.com/armstrong/$name#egg=$name
