Post

A simple command line helper for Jekyll

To do

  • Add drafting functionality

$ post draft <title> Should create a draft post that will be stored under drafts. $ post publish <title> to prepend the date to the file and move it to to _posts. $ post unpublish <title> could be an option as well.

Usage

Create a post: post Some Post Title

List all posts post list

Edit a post post edit [some-post-title]

Publish your blog post publish

Installation

If you have npm:

npm install -g jekyll-post

If you don't have npm, you will need to install it via Node. Either download it from the Node website or install it via the command line. The latter will depend on your system, but here's a guess at what might work for you immediately:

Mac (with Homebrew):

brew install node

Ubuntu:

Here's a great installation article from Digital Ocean.

Configuration

jekyll-post requires a .postrc file in your root directory. This file is necessary to tell jekyll-post where your Jekyll blog is located on your computer. Here's an example of ~/.postrc:

{
  "source": "/path/to/jekyll"
}

Enjoy.
