What it is, yo?

Gitblogger lets you write blog entries in reStructuredText (RST) and posts (or updates) them automatically to a Blogger blog when you push them to a repository. The work flow looks like this:

[working copy] -[push]-> [remote repository] -[GitBlogger]-> [Blogger]

The code is a little rough around the edges, but it seems to work.

And why would you want to do that?

Maybe you don’t? I don’t know.

I don’t think that anyone should have to write HTML, and RST is my preferred lightweight markup language. I’m also a fan of version control in general and git in particular. I like being able to track my changes over time, I like using a real editor on my posts, and I like having things happen with the smallest amount of manual intervention possible.


Requirements that should be installed automatically if you use easy_install
