Project description

currently basic functionality

A simple, python based, commandline wordpress blogging tool.
A commandline wrapper to publishing with markdown and wordpress-xmlrpc





  1. python-wordpress-xmlrpc
  2. python-markdown

using wordpress: XML-RPC Api


The short way: Straight from the cheeseshop

pip install push_to_wordpress

The long way:

git clone git://

cd PushToWordpress
python install #(If that doesn't work you should run the build command first)


Current and quite basic:

presser --title optionaltitle --posts anotherinputfile

where there is a config.ini file with wordpress blog connection details in the same folder.

Full command line options and flags here

Simple isn’t it?
currently can’t handle media files with the posts
but check the TODO section for more info about that..

Don’t forget to enter your wordpress blog config in the config.ini file (look at configdemo.ini for inspiration)



TODO or “How can I help or contribute”:

fork, open issues etc. Don’t forget tocheck our TODO


for older wordpress installs you should enable the XML-RPC:
in later versions it’s enabled by default.
