I have a few hundred posts in a blog that have transferred to Jekyll. Some of these posts are tagged as
private. I would like a way to filter these posts out when I build the site so they do not exist in the built site at all.
As far as I can see there is no option to do this. If I am wrong on this please let me know of course… meanwhile I have tried to implement a solution to the problem.
I have taken a quick look at the code and found it’s easily extended to support this with additional checks in
lib/jekyll/publisher.rb fed from command-line options fed in by
I initially implemented a
--private option and excluded posts having a
private tag unless this option is given:
--private Render posts that were marked as private
I’ve made a fork of the repo and have committed this change to a fetaure branch.
That solves my own immediate need but it is specific to a tag that I use. I thought I would make it generic and support inclusion and exclusion of tags and/or categories. I implemented four options:
--with-categories CAT[,CAT,...] Render posts that have any of these categories --without-categories CAT[,CAT,...] Render posts that do not have any of these categories --with-tags TAG[,TAG,...] Render posts that have any of these tags --without-tags TAG[,TAG,...] Render posts that do not have any of these tags
I have committed this change to another feature branch.
I’m just looking for feedback on this right now but I am ready to submit either of these as a pull request if that would be useful.
