Hexo-recover-files

Recover your markdown files from your static repository for your Hexo based site.

For those (like me) who were silly and did not back up their precompiled markdown files for their Hexo blog, hopefully this repo helps. The goal is to be able to clone your static repo with your compiled HTML files to convert them back into markdown and the proper pre-compiled directory structure.

This project requires Python 3.

Supported Features

This project can rebuild the following features:

  • Directory structure found in your source/_posts
  • YAML front-matter (only title, date, and tags supported)
  • Headers (h1, h2, h3 etc.)
  • Images and their assets
  • Iframes

Instructions

  1. Install the repo

    git clone https://github.com/jtloong/hexo-recover-files
    cd hexo-recover-files
    pip install -r requirements.txt
  2. Clone your static website repo with your compiled files

  3. Edit the locations.json file with the folder locations of your static repo:

    • Change static_folder value to the name of your repo
    • Change post_folder array to the locations of your post folders
  4. Run python extract.py

The extraction script will build a posts/ directory with all of your pre-compiled markdown files and their assets.

Notes

I've only so far tested this on my static repo and it mostly works. Let me know if you run into any issues!
