Vim as a Blogger editor

| Comments

Blogger.vim is a vim plugin for interfacing with Google’s Blogger. Below I will use my workspace git repository. To use this plugin we need pretty new ruby >= 1.9.2 and gems nokogiri and net-https-wrapper. Let’s install latest possible ruby for Debian, before that make sure you have latest updates:

sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get dist-upgrade And ruby:

sudo apt-get install ruby1.9.3 Before we install gems , we need to resolve some dependencies:

sudo apt-get install libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev Latest nokogiri 1.5.2 have some issues, so we need to use 1.5.0 which is stable:

sudo gem install nokogiri —version 1.5.0 And the wrapper for https:

sudo gem install net-https-wrapper Finally also pandoc will be neded to display web pages in vim:

sudo apt-get install pandoc Right now we are able to run vim with blogger support. First we need to configure vim, add below lines to your $HOME/.vimrc file:

let g:blogger_blogid = ‘your_blogid_here’ let g:blogger_email = ‘your_email_here’ let g:blogger_pass = ‘your_blogger_password_here’ Run vim and try to list your blogger posts by typing:

:e blogger:list If list of you see all your posts than it seems that plugin works good. Finally check writing feature. Create file with some text and type:

:w blogger:create Few things doesn’t work as it should. Meybe I will find enough time to fix it. This article was created by using blogger.vim script.
