Projects / BlogMax


BlogMax makes it easy to use Emacs to maintain a Web log. You define templates and an FTP site for uploads. Most of your site's content is defined by text files. Saving a text file automatically wraps the template around it, expands macros and shortcuts, and saves the HTML file. Other commands in "weblog" mode upload files via FTP, create an RSS file, yank links or blockquotes into the buffer, create shortcuts, etc. The BlogMax Web site was, of course, created with BlogMax. It has been tested in Emacs 20.3.1 on Windows and Emacs 20.4.1 on Mandrake Linux.

    Release Notes: A few bugs were fixed and the ability to create a monthly index page was added. The weblog.ini file now includes instructions on how to use Tramp to upload via scp instead of FTP. Some suggestions to make the generated HTML pass weblint were implemented. The three GIF files were converted to PNG. The "previous month" links generated by the {calendar} macro now point to the previous day file even if it's more than a month away.

      This was an exceptionally easy blog to set up, is well documented and appears to be a mature product that can be extended by its users.
