A command-line tool to manage your blogs on wordpress
A command line tool to manage your blogs on wordpress.com.
Create configuration file ~/.config/twordpress/config with following entry:
[blog0] url=dilawarrajput.wordpress.com name=Dilawar's Blog user=dilawars password=pass [blog1] name=Dilawar's Notes url=dilawarnotes.wordpress.com user=dilawars password=abababaaati
If you choose to store this file to some other location then you should pass --config path/to/twordpressrc like option to the twordpress command.
A fork of the library https://github.com/maxcutler/python-wordpress-xmlrpc/blob/master/docs/index.rst is included in this version.
You can install pandoc. This application turn html to markdown format and vice-versa. I can do more but this is what we need. If pandoc is not available then it uses a python script to turn html to text.
Proxy support is added recently to python-wordpress-xmlrcp. It reads environment variable http_proxy. If you are behind proxied network, then export http_proxy=proxy.something.net:1212 in your bash. And we are good to go.

twordpress --blog 1 --fetch all twordpress --blog 0 --fetch "Python is awesome" twordpress
First command will download all posts and pages from blog1. And second will download all posts which matches the given query from blog0. Third command will download most recent entries from default blog (blog0). Currently it does not download media.
Each post gets its own directory and two files conetent.md and content.html are created. Edit markdown file and run the following command to update the post.
