Writing WordPress post using emacs org-mode.
This post I have created on Feb 2014 and today have picked this post to elaborate on how we can use Emacs with wordpress.
While now I am using native wordpress writing area, basically Gutenberg, but back in 2014 I tried to use emacs for publishing my blogs. The inspiration has come from various other emacs blog writer like sachachua.
This is my test blog post from Aquamacs.
Well, i am just going to write a brief about how I made this post work.
First of all, let me point you to this wonderful link, which list down the way to make emacs and org-mode work with wodpress and make this post possible.
So, here what i did.
I had this melpa and elpa repostiory already configured. so quickly did M-x package-install return; org2blog return
some quick configuration changes in my .emacs file to incorporate the org2blog settings and wordpress cofiguration.
(setq org2blog/wp-blog-alist '(("pablumfication" :url "http://username.wordpress.com/xmlrpc.php" :username "admin")))
Now, we just need to login to our wordpress blog, M-x org2blog/wp-login return
and start writing post with M-x org2blog/wp-new-entry return
Happy blogging C-c p return.
Well that is it, isn’t writing blog from emacs is simple. But yes these cryptic key combinations can intimidate anyone easily. But yes you can also refer to my beginning emacs guide which I am publishing regularly and is part of my learn emacs in 30 day challenege which you can also easily follow.
Start from Day 1 and move forward.
