Markingdown markdown: Moving to orgmode
I used to use
Markdown a lot. But, increasingly,
org-mode has taken over as my 'formatter' of choice (yes, formatter isn't the right word, but it will do here).
So, with this blog post, I am moving over to org-mode.
The big question that I have yet to answer is, "Should I move my old posts from
org-mode formatting? It would not be a trivial task, even with some scripting. Let's see how it goes :)
As, something of a codicil, I also moved to the latest version of Hugo (0.74.2). This necessitated me going through and fixing/updating some of my templates around RSS handling and date formatting. Template debugging is no fun.
.org file (to work with Hugo) needs to look like this:
#+title: Markingdown markdown: Moving to orgmode #+date: <2020-07-21 Tue> #+categories: blogging technology
Note the brackets and the day of the week. This is how most dates in org-mode are written.
Update of the Update
.org file (to work with Hugo) really needs to look like this:
#+title: Markingdown markdown: Moving to orgmode #+date: 2020-07-21T12:00:00+13:00 #+categories: Tech #+tags Blogging Markdown Orgmode Hugo
And I have moved to new tags and categories.
