blaze-add - add a blog post or a page to the BlazeBlogger repository


blaze-add [-pqCPV] [-b directory] [-a author] [-d date] [-t title] [-T tags] [-u url] [file...]

blaze-add -h | -v


blaze-add adds new blog posts or pages to the BlazeBlogger repository. If supplied, it tries to read data from the existing files, otherwise an external editor is opened to let you create a new content.

Note that inside your posts and pages, you can use several special placeholders to be replaced by appropriate data later, when the static content is being generated; the case is not significant, and supported placeholders are as follows:

Relative path to the root directory of the blog; to be used inside links.
Relative path to the website home (index) page; to be used inside links.
Relative path to the page with given id; to be used inside links.
Relative path to the post with given id; to be used inside links.
Relative path to the tag with given name; to be used inside links.

You can also use a special form, <!-- break -->, to mark the end of a part to be displayed on index page.


-b, --blogdir directory
Specify the directory where the BlazeBlogger repository is placed. The default option is the current working directory.
-t, --title title
Specify the post/page title.
-a, --author author
Specify the post/page author.
-d, --date date
Specify the post/page date of publishing; the date has to be in the YYYY-MM-DD form.
-T, --tags tags
Specify the comma separated list of tags attached to the blog post; pages ignore these.
-u, --url url
Specify the post/page url to be used instead of the one based on the post/page title. It should consist of alphanumeric characters, hyphens and underscores only, and it is especially useful if non-ASCII characters are present in the title.
-p, --page, --pages
Add page instead of blog post.
-P, --post, --posts
Add blog post; this is the default option.
-C, --no-processor
Disable the use of external processor. Unless the "core.processor" is enabled in the configuration, this is the default behaviour.
-q, --quiet
Avoid displaying messages that are not necessary.
-V, --verbose
Display all messages. This is the default option.
-h, --help
Display usage information and exit.
-v, --version
Display version information and exit.


Unless the BlazeBlogger specific option core.editor is set, blaze-edit tries to use system wide settings to decide which editor to run. If neither of these options are supplied, the vi is used instead as a considerably reasonable choice.


BlazeBlogger configuration file.
