blogpost media processing

May 22, 2008

blogpost 0.9.0 adds lots of new features to the previous 0.1.0 release. The most important feature in the blogpost 0.9.0 release is WordPress media file management:

  • Media files (images, videos, audio, document) referenced in your AsciiDoc (or HTML) documents are automatically uploaded and linked to the uploaded blog.
  • Only new or modified media files are uploaded (changes detected using cached MD5 checksums).
  • Metadata caching means post options are remembered and don’t need to be repeated every time you update your posts.
  • WordPress Pages can be posted and updated (blogpost includes a patched containing Page methods).


Blogging with AsciiDoc

May 15, 2008

Since this blog was written many new features have been added to blogpost — see blogpost media processing

I make lots of notes using AsciiDoc, the sort of stuff that’s to minor and/or not rigorous enough for formal publication, but possibly useful to others.

So I decided it was about time I started posting my notes to a blog. Creating and maintaining posts using the normal browser based interfaces was not an option — just to tedious for words. So I looked around for an HTML friendly blog host that could make a reasonable job of rendering AsciiDoc generated HTML.
