Charm Works Again

This is just a quick post to test the GNU Social Comments plugin. I decided to try charm again to post this, and was pleasantly surprised to find it works again. Something in the last wordpress updates broke it, but now it’s back.
Just as a reminder, CLI Day 2015 is approaching quickly. GNU Social users can join the CLI Day Group. Don’t have a GNU Social account? Get one at social.2mb.solutions. Let’s make this year the biggest CLI Day ever!

Blogging With Charm

If you love the CLI, and I do, charm is a great way to write, edit, or pretty much do anything with your blog. It is written for Live Journal, but works with WordPress. Setup is simple, just change the info below to match your credentials and launch charm. In Arch Linux, charm is available in the AUR:

metaweb = USERNAME PASSWORD http://YOURSITE.EXT/xmlrpc.php
editor = vim
pager = vimpager

And that’s it, you’re ready to pretty much control your blog right from the terminal. Charm has tons of options, and the menu based interface makes everything nice and easy.
