blog.sh - A relatively simple bash-based blogging application

Author: Mike Gauthier <thalios1973 at 3cx dot org>

VERSION HISTORY

  • 0.1.0 First relatively working version. Certainly some bugs. Being used actively at blog.3cx.org.

WHY BASH?

Because I can? I guess that's the truth of it. I was inspired by Carlos Fenollosa's bashblog. I used it on my own blog for a bit and made some tweaks and contributions to the code, but I thought it could be done differently and maybe even better (my way!). So I wrote (am writing) bash.sh from scratch. bashblog was definitely my inspiration, but I took zero code from it.

FEATURES

  • Supposed to be simple. Right now less than 1000 lines of code.
  • Basic features for blogging
    • Create new
    • Save to draft
    • Edit existing or draft
    • Rebuild of site (good for updating the template)
    • Static page support.
  • Very basic templating - variable substition (TITLE, SUBTITLE, etc.). Currently supported variables
    • ~~~TITLE~~~ - set in .config as blogtitle
    • ~~~SUBTITLE~~~ - set in .config as blogsubtitle
    • ~~~BASEURL~~~ - the base URL of the blog set in .config as baseurl
    • ~~~CONTENT~~~ - the generated content of the page
    • ~~~PAGETITLE~~~ - the specific title of the specific page
    • ~~~PAGEURL~~~ - the URL (permalink) of the specific page
  • Uses all standard utilities available on any modern Linux/Unix system. Should work in Cygwin as well.
    • The only exception to this is pandoc for markdown parsing. One could use something else, but I chose pandoc because it provides for a LOT of flexibility.
    • The emoji extension and full github style markdown are useful.
  • Simple RSS support. Creates a feed.rss file for syndication (Simple RSS 2.0)
