Adding a pelican-newpost script #1410
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.
