Dear org-mode users, I've just tagged version 0.90 of my org-blog minor mode on github.
This is intended to be a simple but powerful assistant to using Org for writing blog posts---there's only two commands at this point, and I don't anticipate that number going beyond three anytime soon (though I do have that third one planned! ;) At the moment it only supports WordPress blogs, but the design is very modular, and adding support for other back-ends (including, I hope, static publishing back-ends) should be relatively painless. If it's not, I would be happy to change things to make it so, once I understand the issues. I have one outstanding bug, that timestamps get mangled. I thought I'd squashed it, but apparently not. I need to create a test and track that down. The only other immediate issue I see is that it is still using the 7.8.x exporter---converting to (or supporting in parallel if possible) the 8.0 exporter is next on my list of things to do. I wrote a series of posts going through the implementation on my blog---all authored with org-blog itself. Although this is the first thing I've written for Emacs outside of hacking on my .emacs.d, I think the code is fairly clear. I would appreciate feedback, and would enjoy and even solicit assitance with some things: for instance, as a Debian user, I turn out to not know MELPA/Marmalade from a hole in the ground---so if someone was motivated to create the changes to support package installation though emacs, I would be quite happy to merge it. ;) There's a TODO list of things I hope to work on, and I would be happy to add to that as well; knowing that people are using it is going to be the greatest motivation for things to happen---otherwise I will probably plod along doing things in my own sweet time, since it's working pretty well for me so far. Cheers, Mike.  https://github.com/mdorman/org-blog  https://github.com/mdorman/org-blog/issues/16  http://doyouevenlisp.com/tag/org-blog/
