App::org2wp - Publish Org document to WordPress as blog post

VERSION

This document describes version 0.008 of App::org2wp (from Perl distribution App-org2wp), released on 2019-12-26.

FUNCTIONS

org2wp

Usage:

 org2wp(%args) -> [status, msg, payload, meta]

Publish Org document to WordPress as blog post.

This is originally a quick hack because I couldn't make Lhttps://github.com/punchagan/org2blog on my Emacs installation to work after some update. org2wp uses the same format as org2blog, but instead of being an Emacs package, it is a CLI script written in Perl.

First, create ~/org2wp.conf containing the API credentials, e.g.:

 proxy=https://YOURBLOGNAME.wordpress.com/xmlrpc.php
 username=YOURUSERNAME
 password=YOURPASSWORD

You can also put multiple credentials in the configuration file using profile sections, e.g.:

 [profile=blog1]
 proxy=https://YOURBLOG1NAME.wordpress.com/xmlrpc.php
 username=YOURUSERNAME
 password=YOURPASSWORD
 
 [profile=blog2]
 proxy=https://YOURBLOG2NAME.wordpress.com/xmlrpc.php
 username=YOURUSERNAME
 password=YOURPASSWORD

and specify which profile you want using command-line option e.g. --config-profile blog1.

To create a blog post, write your Org document (e.g. in post1.org) using this format:

 #+TITLE: Blog post title
 #+CATEGORY: cat1, cat2
 #+TAGS: tag1,tag2,tag3
 
 Text of your post ...
 ...

then:

 % org2wp post1.org

this will create a draft post. To publish directly:

 % org2wp --publish post1.org

Note that this will also modify your Org file and insert this line at the top:

 #+POSTID: 1234

where 1234 is the post ID retrieved from the server when creating the post.

After the post is created, you can update using the same command:

 % org2wp post1.org

You can use --publish to publish the post, or --no-publish to revert it to draft.

To set more attributes:

 % org2wp post1.org --comment-status open \
     --extra-attr ping_status=closed --extra-attr sticky=1

Another example, to schedule a post in the future:

 % org2wp post1.org --schedule 20301225T00:00:00

This function is not exported.

This function supports dry-run operation.

Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments):

  • comment_status => str (default: "closed")

    Whether to allow comments (open) or not (closed).

  • extra_attrs => hash

    Set extra post attributes, e.g. ping_status, post_format, etc.

  • filename* => filename

    Path to Org document to publish.

  • password* => str

  • proxy* => str

    Example: Chttps://YOURBLOGNAME.wordpress.com/xmlrpc.php.

  • publish => bool

    Whether to publish post or make it a draft.

    Equivalent to --extra-attr post_status=published, while --no-publish is equivalent to --extra-attr post_status=draft.

  • schedule => date

    Schedule post to be published sometime in the future.

    Equivalent to --publish --extra-attr post_date=DATE. Note that WordPress accepts date in the YYYYMMDD"T"HH:MM:SS format, but you specify this option in regular ISO8601 format. Also note that time is in your chosen local timezone setting.

  • username* => str

Special arguments:

  • -dry_run => bool

    Pass -dry_run=>1 to enable simulation mode.

Returns an enveloped result (an array).

First element (status) is an integer containing HTTP status code (200 means OK, 4xx caller error, 5xx function error). Second element (msg) is a string containing error message, or 'OK' if status is 200. Third element (payload) is optional, the actual result. Fourth element (meta) is called result metadata and is optional, a hash that contains extra information.

Return value: (any)
