This post was written in Emacs

Before I really get started on posting blog entries for this, it was imperative I figure out a way to blog from Emacs. Cause really, what self-respecting Lisper blogs from a tiny text field in a web browser? Madness.

So, if you also want or have a blog on this site and want to do it in emacs:

  1. go get weblogger.el I just used ELPA, but there's a later version available.
  2. Once you've got that loaded, do M-x weblogger-setup-weblog. When it asks you for the Server Endpoint, enter http://www.lispnyc.org/blog/xmlrpc. The other parameters (username, password, blog name) should be self explanatory.
  3. Profit

There are some issues. Authentication is plaintext, I have to manually type the entries in HTML. But it's still better than a web form!
