My very first post

Hello World!

As you can guess from the title, this is my very first blog post. I am not really sure, whether I will provide posts on a regular basis here. Most probably not… However, in the case I find something useful enough to share it, I will do so. Let's see where the journey goes.

This blog lives in org-mode!

Yes, the posts you are reading right now is a *.org file exported to html, and the blog is generated with org-publish. More precisely, I am using something like this:

(defun acemacs/site-format-entry (entry style project)
    (format "[[file:%s][%s]] --- %s"
            (org-publish-find-title entry project)
            (format-time-string "%Y-%m-%d" (org-publish-find-date entry project))))

(setq org-publish-project-alist
         :base-directory "~/Documents/workspace/website/org"
         :base-extension "org"
         :publishing-directory "/ssh:labora:~/Dokumente/website/posts"
         :publishing-function org-html-publish-to-html
         :headline-levels 3
         :section-numbers nil
         :with-toc nil
         :with-date t
         :auto-sitemap t
         :sitemap-filename ""
         :sitemap-title "Blog"
         :sitemap-sort-files anti-chronologically
         :sitemap-format-entry acemacs/site-format-entry
         :sitemap-file-entry-format "%d - %t"
         "<link rel=\"stylesheet\" type=\"text/css\" href=\"../custom_style.css\" />"
         :html-postamble nil)

         :base-directory "~/Documents/workspace/website/org/img"
         :base-extension "jpg\\|gif\\|png"
         :publishing-directory "/ssh:labora:~/Dokumente/website/posts/img"
         :publishing-function org-publish-attachment)

        ("blog" :components ("orgfiles_blog" "images_blog" ))))

Actually, I am really fascinated by the ease of this method. I can easily write my blog-post in emacs utilizing the full power of org-mode and publish it right away to my web-server!
