Publish your markdown to Medium, from the CLI

Project description


publish your markdown to Medium, from the CLI


$ pip install mdium



First off, set up mdium with your Medium integration token. You’ll have to generate one from the settings page.

$ mdium init <integration-token>

This will create a file at ~/.mdium, containing your integration token and author ID.


For publishing, your markdown doc must have the following frontmatter:

title: My Awesome Post
tags: ['some', 'tags', 'here']
status: draft

## markdown here

Note that the status field can be either draft or public.

Finally, run

$ mdium publish path/to/
Done! Your post has been published at

It’s that simple.
