Set of emacs commands to use emacs as a blogger client
======================================================

Emacs is great for anything involving text files, not only code. The use of emacs for blogging seems a natural way instead of using those browser editors, that lacks a lot of power. This is expecially true for developers that writes tutorials on the web, that have nightmares each time they have to post a code snippet on their blog.

This packages contains essential features for a blog client, the purpose is that it has to be *useful*, no useless function, and a lot of shortcuts and utilities.

Installing
==========

To use the package you have first to install it, unfortunately there are some dependencies since it uses python. In future I'll try to remove them as possible.

Python Dependencies:
 - BeautifulSoup
 - dateutil
 - python-gdata

Emacs Dependencies:
 - pymacs

After satisfying dependencies place the proj directory for example in .emacs.d and add a line on your .emacs:

 (load-file "path/to/blogger-mode.el")

Usage
=====

Here's a list of commands, most of them are completely interactive.

`blogger-post` : when you're editing a buffer using rst-mode or org-mode, you can 'M-x blogger-post' in order to post the article in your blog. The conversion is done automatically.

`blogger-update` : After posting you may want to add some modification, using this command will update the blog posted.

`blogger-show` : you can type this command when you want to display a list of post of your blog. It will open a buffer in blogger-mode with a custom keymap.

  d -> blogger-delete, delete the post under the cursor
  g -> blogger-update-view, update
  q -> blogger-quit, quit
  t -> blogger-tag, to add tags to the post
