This is the repository that the yt Project's blog is held in.

How to Add a Blog Entry

Simply create a new .rst file in content/post/, with the extension .rst. The file doesn't need to have any prefixes; the old blog entries do simply because that helped organize them.

Then, submit a pull request.

How to Add an IPython Notebook

First, download the nbconvert repository from the IPython project. Place that directory in your path.

Then, from the root of this blohg directory, run:

python2.7 --post-name "Your Post Name" /path/to/notebook.ipynb

This will upload a copy of your notebook to the Hub as well as converting it to ReST, along with all of its attachments. Then to add it to the blog, with its files:

hg ci -A

which will add any new files that are found in the repository's path.

What Manages The Blog

This blog is managed by the software blohg ( ) which handles versioning in a mercurial repository. On top of that, it uses Shining Panda and Amazon's S3 to automatically publish new entries that get pushed to the main repository.

How Do I View My Blog Locally

First, ensure you have blohg installed:

pip install -U blohg

Once you have committed your new file to the repository, run:

blohg runserver

and go to the URL it spits out. This will show you your new blog entry.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
