Tips for Quicker Posting


#1

I’m eventually going to figure out how to post to my site with dropbox, but in the meantime i’m wondering if anyone has any tips for creating posts a little faster in a regular installation?

Part of what’s slowing me down is writing the date in the file, and then taking care of the frontmatter. If it’s possible, maybe Sublime Text can auto-generate the date part, and if my posts are inside a certain folder then all the frontmatter can be automatically appended?

RE: front matter by folder. Jekyll has a feature where you can set front matter defaults for files based on their path.

RE: Sublime Text + Jekyll, there’s a package you can install that might help speed up creating new posts.
