Nikola is a static site generator, written in Python. It natively supports RestructuredText or Markdown, and it is also possible to write with orgmode thanks to a plugin.
Nikola.el is a wrapper around Nikola commands, allowing to create posts, run or publish your site from emacs.
To write with org-mode, we still need org2nikola (see below).
Install nikola's org plugin
Once you have setup your Nikola site, install the plugin with
nikola plugin -i orgmode
and add this in your config.py:
# Add the orgmode compiler to your COMPILERS dict. COMPILERS["orgmode"] = ('.org',) # Add org files to your POSTS, PAGES POSTS = POSTS + (("posts/*.org", "posts", "post.tmpl"),) PAGES = PAGES + (("stories/*.org", "posts", "post.tmpl"),)
Blog from orgmode
Now add Nikola's header in a comment block at the top of your new post:
#+BEGIN_COMMENT .. title: a title .. slug: a-title .. date: 2014-08-07 10:57:15 UTC-04:00 .. tags: one, two .. link: .. description: .. type: text #+END_COMMENT
You can now write a blog post using orgmode and Nikola.
Leverage the work with org2nikola
Install it with packages.el (via MELPA), put the cursor in the subtree you want to publish and call M-x org2nikola-export-subtree. It is the only command currently available. A drawback is that it publishes the post as html with a ".wp" extension, not in the org format (which is good for people coming from wordpress).
Other utilities are in development. The command M-x nikola-post-subtree will ask for missing properties and publish the post, keeping the org format. You also have M-x nikola-set-post-properties to interactively set the required properties (title, description, date, tags).
