Guess what's back

A while ago I wrote a couple of functions in GNU Emacs to help me with blogging using tekuti. I don't know how, but I somehow accidentally deleted the file these functions were in and didn't have the energy to retrieve it.

Today I wanted to blog a little again and so I rewrote the functions from last time, but this time hopefully a little better. I'm now fully dependent on org-mode and use its comment/property syntax to manage tekuti's metadata.

I've already put it in a temporary spot for safe keeping, I'll move it somewhere else when I have a little more of it.

The functions I'll still want to add include:

  • Editing the posts I've written in org, showing the options I used
    for them in the usual way.

  • Automatic committing, this shouldn't be too hard since I've also
    written an emacs minor mode that does this.

  • Easy saving, listing and continuing of drafts, right now I'm just
    placing org files in my $HOME directory.

And anything else that I can come up with later.
