Markdown to Wordpress in Python

December 27, 2011 by Gabe | [mmd] |

I got part way down the rabbit hole before I found this nice looking Python project. It looks very complete. The GitHub project is worth a look too.

The python allows writing in Markdown with meta-data headers and then posting directly to a WordPress blog.

I might still continue with my work since I like using Marked to get the HTML for a post. Marked provides a beautiful preview of the post as a sanity check. If you see some wonky looking posts in the future, it’s a good chance I I’ve started posting using a Python script and didn’t consider some edge-case.[1]

  1. This post was written in MultiMarkdown Composer, previewed with Marked and then uploaded from a Keyboard Maestro macro. Yeah, I think I’ve gone off the rails this holiday break.  ↩
