Projects / Vee


Vee is a command-line blog tool that is very portable across Unix systems. It provides an interactive as well as a batch interface to maintain a log of entries. Formatting is done using a module architecture that allows a high degree of customization. There are minimal flags and no set up is required.

Working towards a new release. 03 Jun 2012 23:16

While I thinking about the best way to improve vee, I decided that I would focus on creating a set of tools centered around the Unix philosophy that would make managing vee posts much easier. With this in mind, I am working towards a new release that focuses on supporting tools to help manage the .vee directory and .raw files. Highlights veels Used to support supported and custom built utilities for managing posts, this utility will simply return a list of .raw files in the .vee directory; it's used as a supporting tool for vee-rebuild. veecat Given a .raw file name, veecat will output the title (-t), the date (-d), the body of the post (-b), or all (-a). It's used essentially as a way to parse .raw files, but can be used in combination with veels to list all titles, for example: "% veels | veecat -t" vee-rebuild Rebuilds the index file incase it's accidentally deleted, based on the contest of the .vee directory's .raw files. Bleeding edge of these can be tried out via the git repo's master branch. They will work with existing vee blogs. A new version release will ensue once testing and documentation are complete. Enjoy.
