@write_as is trying be be one (though I've seen a number of people advising waiting until the release their source code; they've promised to become open source but aren't right now)
It's also very easy to self-host a blog with a static site generator. I love #gutenberg, but people also like #hugo or #Jekyll. And #Netlify provides good, free hosting for static sites. (#gitHub pages too)
@trayofbees We also have a command-line tool for publishing posts (https://write.as/apps/cli). It only supports anonymous publishing at the moment, but I'm working on the ability to publish to accounts / blogs now.
Let me know if you ever have questions or feedback as you try things out :)
I'm not a Go coder.. where does the write.as CLI do the Markdown parsing? Searched for "blackfriday" (Go Markdown parsing library), "markdown", .. found nothing.
Hmm.. so @write_as does seem to use Blackfriday :)
If so, ox-blackfriday might help.
Out of curiosity, I did `writeas new` and pasted in markdown content from a post that publishes fine using Hugo/Blackfriday.
But all Markdown remained unrendered: https://write.as/aj0irkiuoyd07
Here's the same post published using Hugo: https://scripter.co/splitting-an-org-block-into-two/.
@kaushalmodi Thanks, I haven't heard about Chroma before -- I've been looking for a way to add that, so I'll give that a shot. And I'll see what's going on with the headers. Maybe that's something I have to enable in the configuration
