Minimalist Blog Engine snehesh.me

Discuss on Hacker News

TL;DR

Publish a blog post with git push

My motivation to build this blog engine was based on 3 factors.

  • Write on any device ( i.e Mobile, Laptop) using CLI or text editor
  • Never worry about database backups and keep track of all changes I made on an article
  • Make publishing simple without touching the server

This project uses git to track all changes made on an article, as all the writing is done in markdown format, I can write posts on multiple devices ( CLI (Termux) on Android, VIM or Sublime on Arch ) switching back and forth. Finally I can publish those writings by adding metadata to the metadata.json file. In other words the posts are visible on blog only when they are enabled in metadata.json.

ToDo

  • Multiprocess support for DataStore()
  • Support for .rst format
  • Social Buttons ( HN, Twitter )
  • Filtered views based on Tags
