Going to start hijacking this blog, to record/link to patches I submit to various open-source projects. As with everything else on here, it’s mainly to ensure I can find these little snippets a few months later.
So, to start, something intended for this blog itself. A patch to the google commandline tools enabling the “google blogger post” command to post content read from stdin (adding to the current options of supplying a string or a filename). Usage is the traditional ‘-‘ in place of a filename.
This enables two pieces of functionality I’d find very useful:
A) filter content through other programs. e.g. using markdown to HTMLify my content:
$ markdown post.txt | google blogger post –
B) make a blogpost from within vim, by selecting my post content and piping it to googlecl
