Rake tasks to rename Octopress posts to correspond to metadata, for org-mode as well. In Octopress, the meta is used for the blog post date.
org_posts_dir = "org_posts" # directory under source
# From http://www.ewal.net/2012/09/08/octopress-customizations/
# Modified to have default flag of true to include drafts
desc "Rename files in the posts directory if the filename does not match the post date in the YAML front matter"
task :rename_posts do
rename_posts_in_dir "#{source_dir}/#{posts_dir}", "markdown"
# remove next line if you're you're not using org-mode
rename_posts_in_dir "#{source_dir}/#{org_posts_dir}", "org"
end
def rename_posts_in_dir dir, ext, include_drafts = true
Dir.chdir(dir) do
Dir["*.#{ext}"].each do |post|
post_date = ""
File.open( post ) do |f|
f.grep( /^date: / ) do |line|
post_date = line.gsub(/date: /, "").gsub(/\s.*$/, "")
break
end
end
post_title = post.to_s.gsub(/\d{4}-\d{2}-\d{2}/, "") # Get the post title from the currently processed post
new_post_name = post_date + post_title # determing the correct filename
rename = post != new_post_name
next unless rename
unless include_drafts
is_draft = false
File.open( post ) do |f|
f.grep( /^published: false/ ) do |line|
is_draft = true
break
end
end
next if is_draft
end
puts "renaming #{post} to #{new_post_name}"
FileUtils.mv(post, new_post_name)
end
end
end
