Statocles::App::Blog - A blog application
This is a simple blog application for Statocles.
Content dividers. By dividing your main content with "---", you create sections. Only the first section will show up on the index page or in RSS feeds.
RSS and Atom syndication feeds.
Tags to organize blog posts. Tags have their own custom feeds so users can subscribe to only those posts they care about.
Cross-post links to redirect users to a syndicated blog. Useful when you participate in many blogs and want to drive traffic to them.
Post-dated blog posts to appear automatically when the date is passed. If a blog post is set in the future, it will not be added to the site when running
In order to ensure that post-dated blogs get added, you may want to run
deployin a nightly cron job.
# site.yml blog: class: Statocles::App::Blog args: store: _posts
The store directory path to read for blog posts. Required.
The Blog directory is organized in a tree by date, with a directory for the year, month, day, and post. Each blog post is its own directory to allow for additional files for the post, like images or additional pages.
# site.yml blog: class: Statocles::App::Blog args: tag_text: software: Posts about software and development travel: My travelogue around the world!
A hash of tag and introductory Markdown that will be shown on the tag's main page. Having a description is optional.
Using Beam::Wire's $config directive, you can put the tag text in an external file:
# site.yml blog: class: Statocles::App::Blog args: tag_text: $config: tags.yml # tags.yml software: |- # Software Posts about software development, mostly in [Perl](http://perl.org) travel: |- # Travel My travelogue around the world! [Also visit my Instagram!](http://example.com)
# site.yml blog: class: Statocles::App::Blog args: page_size: 5
The number of posts to put in a page (the main page and the tag pages). Defaults to 5.
# site.yml blog: class: Statocles::App::Blog args: index_tags: [ '-private', '+important' ]
Filter the tags shown in the index page. An array of tags prefixed with either a + or a -. By prefixing the tag with a "-", it will be removed from the index, unless a later tag prefixed with a "+" also matches.
By default, all tags are shown on the index page.
So, given a document with tags "foo", and "bar":
index_tags: [ ] # document will be included index_tags: [ '-foo' ] # document will not be included index_tags: [ '-foo', '+bar' ] # document will be included
my $exitval = $app->command( $app_name, @args );
Run a command on this app. The app name is used to build the help, so users get exactly what they need to run.
my $slug = $app->make_slug( $title );
Given a post title, remove special characters to create a slug.
my @pages = $app->index( \@post_pages );
Build the index page (a list page) and all related feed pages out of the given array reference of post pages.
my @pages = $app->tag_pages( \%tag_pages );
my @pages = $app->pages( %options );
Get all the pages for this application. Available options are:
The date to build for. Only posts on or before this date will be built. Defaults to the current date.
my @links = $app->tags;
Get a set of link objects suitable for creating a list of tag links. The common attributes are:
text => 'The tag text' href => 'The URL to the tag page'
my @pages = $app->recent_posts( $count, %filter );
Get the last $count recent posts for this blog. Useful for templates and site index pages.
%filter is an optional set of filters to apply to only show recent posts matching the given criteria. The following filters are available:
(string) Only show posts with the given tag
my $url = $app->page_url( $page )
Return the absolute URL to this page object, removing the "/index.html" if necessary.
post [--date <date>] <title>
Create a new blog post, optionally setting an initial
title. The post will be created in a directory according to the current date.
Initial post content can be read from
STDIN. This lets you write other programs to generate content for blog posts (for example, to help automate release blog posts).
