I really want to blog more. The problem is that most of the posts to this blog are fairly long-form. This will probably change as I do blog more.

I’ve also moved to Pandoc for rendering posts via ikiwiki-pandoc.

In that process, I’ve also come to realize that pandoc handles org-mode files almost completely unambiguously—which is not actually something you get in most markup languages/markup language interpreters. BONUS: I enjoy writing in org-mode.

As is my wont, I’ve also created some (not-so) fancy scripts to help me:

#!/usr/bin/env bash

set -eu

POST=$*
BLOG_DIR=$(grep '^srcdir' ~/ikiwiki.setup | cut -d':' -f2 | xargs)
DATE=$(date -Ins)
BLOG_PATH=$(date +'blog/%Y/%m/%d')
EXT='.org'

SAFE_POST=$(echo "$POST" | \
    tr '[:upper:]' '[:lower:]' | \
    sed -e 's/\W/-/g')

OUT="${BLOG_DIR}/${BLOG_PATH}/${SAFE_POST}${EXT}"

mkdir -p "$(dirname "$OUT")"

{
    printf '#+TITLE: %b\n' "$POST"
    printf '\n' "$POST"
    printf '\n\n' "$DATE"
} >> "$OUT"

# http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/EmacsClient
exec emacsclient --no-wait --alternate-editor="" --create-frame "$OUT"
