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
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:
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:
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.
