Blogging from the command line should not be tedious.

This script is intended to automate the process of creating and editing Jekyll blog posts from within vim.

This is a complete rewrite of csexton/jekyll.vim with these improvements:

  • Commands are added as buffer commands when a Jekyll blog is found
  • Commands to edit/split/vsplit/tabnew a post
  • Tab completion for opening existing posts
  • Recognizes Octopress blogs and others with custom _posts directory
  • Customizable template for new posts
  • Customizable build command, with automatic support for bundler


The :Jpost (Jekyll post) command is used to create and edit blog posts. It has variants for opening a post in a horizontal or vertical split or a new tab. Call with a bang, (eg: :Jpost!) to create a new post. Call without a bang (eg: :Jpost) to edit a post. The :Jbuild command can be used to build a blog.

:Jpost[!]  [{name}] Create or edit the specified post. With no argument,
                    you will be prompted to select a post or enter a title.

:JSpost[!] [{name}] Same as :Jpost, but opens post in a horizontal split.

:JVpost[!] [{name}] Same as :Jpost, but opens post in a vertical split.

:JTpost[!] [{name}] Same as :Jpost, but opens post in a tab.

:Jbuild    [{args}] Generate blog. This will check for the presence of a
                    Gemfile; if found `bundle exec` is used to run the
                    `jekyll` command. The blog will be built with:

            jekyll --no-auto --no-server BLOG_ROOT BLOG_ROOT/SITE_DIR <args>

                    If this doesn't fit your situation, you can set a
                    custom command with `g:jekyll_build_command`. When
                    using a custom command no check for a Gemfile is
