So, this is something I'd be interested in working on, but I'm not sure exactly what the right way to do it would be:

I maintain two Pelican sites (currently). It didn't dawn on me until now how useful a script that automatically sets stuff like the date and prompts the user for title/category/slug/author/etc would be.

I was imagining something like pelican-quickstart, which prompts the user directly for most arguments. After having the idea, though, a quick search through the repository found a pull request #1085, which added a script called pelican-article that does something very similar, although it takes command line arguments.

The request was rejected for other reasons, and as far as I can tell hasn't been resubmitted by the original author since then? (If I am wrong, please correct me).

As I'm interested in this feature: would it be permissible for me to take @icyleaf's script as a starting point, modify it, and resubmit it under a different name? I mean, I might do things slightly differently, but his script is probably a decent starting point.

Hi Ben. Thanks for the thoughtful comments. In light of #800, such a feature would most likely find a warm reception as a submission to the soon-to-be-created pelican-tools repository. (^_^)

Oh, great! I'll hold off on working on this until that happens, then.

I've created the repository as a first step: https://github.com/getpelican/pelican-tools would really appreciate if someone could contribute a pull request for #800 to get things started.

@kylef what's the state of this? I could try my hand at a pelican-newpost script for pelican-tools if that was going to be supported, but right now pelican-tools looks abandoned.

cc @justinmayer ^

I already have a new-post script for my workflow, based on a jinja tamplate here. Would gladly update and PR it. Is the deserted pelican-tools repo ever going to be used?
