Yet another blog engine
Mon, 16 Feb 2015 22:35:11 +0000
Yablog is the unimaginatively named "Yet Another Blog engine" and is what's now behind the blog at ww.telent.net - mostly because every third attempt to post with my-way ended up with having to relearn out how all the baroque git hooks worked.
It was supposed to be a two-hour Tuesday morning hack, but it's now almost the following Tuesday morning as I did not anticipate that
- I would need to write my own date parser (see https://github.com/telent/yablog/blob/master/src/yablog/time.clj and https://github.com/telent/yablog/blob/master/resources/dates.bnf ). Instaparse is awesome, it took less time to do this than it was taking to find and download other people's date parsers and find that they didn't support all the date formts I needed to parse
- I would get sucked into the fiddling-around-with-CSS vortex
This entry is mostly just a placeholder to check the new posting process works, but do check out Instaparse if you haven't used it already.
