So now I’m in Vim land and this is the first time I’ve gotten far enough to feel a bit comfy. Decided to dust off my blog and start at it again - what better to do it in than in VIM.
So - TA-DA - here’s the first post - courtsey VIM on ubuntu. However, as usual, it was rougher than it’s supposed to be. IN any case, I’ll forget how I got this far the next time so the next few posts will be around recording how to get VIM to post to WP.com blogs.
But before that - the first thing to to is to get the VimRepress plugin. Better if you have pathogen installed, in which case you can do
cd .vim git submodule add https://github.com/raghur/VimRepress bundle/VimRepress.git
Makes VimRepress work properly through a proxy
Changes the attachment filename to a '.odt' since Wordpress.com doesn’t allow a text file attachment.
I still dont have a clue if doing this will break the plugin - but nevertheless, basic case of posting to my blog works and at this stage that seems good enough for me.
PS as you can see from this post - I’ve not yet got a hang of markdown syntax :)
Dec 29th - PPS a couple of posts and one more tip for Wordpress.com.
<br/> for hardbreaks in the markdown text. Obviously, this
doesnt leave the post looking very good. I have the following in my
.vimrc to get around this
augroup Markdown autocmd FileType markdown set wrap \ linebreak augroup END
PPS You will also need to have python markdown installed once you have VimRepress running.
