Micropub Publish

Posted by Jonathan LaCour <https://cleverdevil.io>, Last update 29 days ago

Publish a draft as an “h-entry” post to a Micropub compatible endpoint. You will be asked for an IndieAuth token and a Micropub endpoint on first run. Categories can be specified as a comma separated list. Also supports toggling private visibility and supplying a “in-reply-to” permalink.

     * Post to a Micropub endpoint.
     *
     * - On first run, you will be prompted for an IndieAuth token and a Micropub
     *   endpoint. These will be saved for future runs.
     * - Options supported include togging "private" visibility, a comma separated
     *   list of categories, and an in-reply-to URL.
     * - The first line of your Draft should be a top-level headline, which will
     *   be used as the title ("name" property) for the post.
