I’ve been using Vim full time for a while now and wanted a decent way to manage blog posts in my Github Pages powered blog.
jekyll.vim has been around for a while, but it had a few drawbacks. I spent the last couple of nights getting to know vimscript a little better, and rewrote it to address these.
Here’s vim-jekyll, my rewrite of the original with a few improvements:
- Commands to edit/split/vsplit/tabnew a post
- Tab completion for opening existing posts
- Recognizes Octopress blogs and others with custom
- Customizable template for new posts
Hope it helps some Octopress/vim users!
