  • John Oliver on Encryption | Irreal
    s an interesting question Maybe commedians can do what common sense and rationality have been unable to do make the average citizen understand what s at stake in the debates It turns out that Oliver s crew spent considerable effort putting the piece together and interviewed all the players The Oliver video is embedded in the Atlantic article so you have one stop shopping Even if you don t care that much about encryption the video is amusing and worth watching for its humor It s nice to see main stream publications giving the matter some intelligent coverage This entry was posted in General and tagged Privacy Security Bookmark the permalink A One liner Fuzzy Isearch What Happens When You Give Law Enforcement a Backdoor Key Search for Recent Posts Elisp Summary Emacs for Prose FISA Abandons the Fourth Amendment Again Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Recent Comments Mike Zamansky on Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola Phil on How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Sebastian Christ on European Quotation Marks NoonianAtall on A Hyper Key on Any USB Keyboard Kris on An Example of Why Reproducible

  • Blogging With Emacs | Irreal
    post are uploaded to the site and their links are adjusted to point to the site s machine rather than my workstation The date and Post ID are added to the Emacs buffer containing the post Information about the post is recorded in org2blog org so that any updates to the post will result in the original post being updated rather than a new post being added By doing all these things org2blog takes care of the majority of the bookkeeping chores associated with making a post When org2blog finishes with the upload I save the file again to save the date and Post ID that org2blog added and call Magit to put it in Git Then I call dired for my blog directory type html to mark any HTML files and then D to delete the HTML files and any associated buffers At this point I m done The post has been published the source for it filed away in Git and extraneous files and buffers have been deleted My old blog also called Irreal was hosted on Blogger Although there is a version of org2blog by a different author for Blogger I didn t use it Instead I used this function defun blog post Export an org buffer as HTML but only export the body interactive org export as html 3 nil nil blog post t to convert the post to HTML and export the body Then I would copy the blog post buffer to the clipboard and paste it into Blogger s HTML editor That worked fairly painlessly unless there was an image involved Blogger stores the images in Picasa instead of with the post so doing things by hand can be a bit involved I wrote about that here I don t know if the Blogger version of org2blog handles pictures automatically but if it did that would be reason enough to use it If it is anywhere close to as convenient as the WordPress version it would be worth using If you use org2blog on Blogger leave a comment telling us about your experiences with it This entry was posted in Blogging and tagged Emacs Org mode Bookmark the permalink Applying and And or In Emacs Emacs Registers Suresh Cool stuff scott I blogged recently about how to blog with org mode and octopress http jaderholm com blog blog 2011 09 26 blogging with org mode and octopress punchagan Thanks for writing this Just wanted to note that the org2blog org file is meant to be a dashboard of sorts to keep track of all the posts that were made from org2blog This is an optional feature and is not necessary to have the updates working The updates will work correctly even without this since the POSTID is saved along with every blog post jcs OK thanks I didn t know that Let me tell you directly how much I love org2blog It makes publishing blog posts pretty much seamless punchagan Good to hear that

    setup in detail so that you can set up your own blog relatively easily His setup uses Ansible which you may or may not want to implement I like the idea of static web pages but I m not sure I like how org page displays things Basically it reproduces the Org mode buffer complete with much of the deemphasized markup My source files look similar to MacRae s but WordPress or rather org2blog wp generates a display that could have been typeset with the default WordPress editor or even LaTex I like what org2blog wp does much better but take a look at MacRae s post and see what you think A lot of bloggers I respect that I know are Emacs users are not posting from Emacs I really don t understand that There are lots of blog solutions available that allow you to post directly from Emacs Why would you not want to do this This entry was posted in Blogging and tagged Emacs Org mode Bookmark the permalink Cleaning Up Garbage Quote of the Day Search for Recent Posts Elisp Summary Emacs for Prose FISA Abandons the Fourth Amendment Again Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Recent Comments Mike Zamansky on Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola Phil on How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Sebastian Christ on European Quotation Marks NoonianAtall on A Hyper Key on Any USB Keyboard Kris on An Example of Why Reproducible Research Matters Links Useful Emacs Commands Archives April 2016 March 2016 February 2016 January 2016 December 2015 November 2015 October 2015 September 2015 August 2015 July 2015 June 2015 May 2015 April 2015 March 2015 February 2015 January 2015 December 2014 November 2014 October 2014 September 2014

    he s using org2blog Like me he s found that it removes much of the friction involved with blogging If you re blogging with WordPress 1 and not using org2blog you really should give it a try Even if you re not an Emacs user you should give it a try I ve been blogging everyday for two and a half years and I know I couldn t do it if I had to use something like the WordPress editor The point is for most people writing is hard enough without making it harder by using suboptimal tools Org of course is a go to tool for most types of writing Add org2blog and you have the perfect blogging tool Footnotes 1 If you re using Blogger there s an org2blog for you too It s not by the same author and is completely unrelated except for the name I haven t tried it but hear good things about it If I were still on Blogger I d almost certainly be using it This entry was posted in Blogging and tagged Emacs Org mode Bookmark the permalink Uncommon Bigrams Kitchin on Using helm to Ease Navigation Sudhir Khanger I suppose if you want to edit a previous entry you would have to user WordPress web interface Does org2blog support adding title tags and categories post types and saving drafts jcs When I have a change to a post I just edit the original Org file and repost it After the first posting the Org file has the post id date and time in it so everything gets put in the right place even if the update is days later Titles tags and categories are specified in the Org file and org2blog automatically takes care of setting them in WordPress It
