I'm writing some scripts to help me manage my articles. I was wondering how to do the following things using an API (if possible):

  • Post a new article (by sending a markdown file)
  • Update an existing article
  • Submit an image and get back a URL to that image

Check out the docs if you haven't yet...

The first two are currently supported, the third point is not. Since any URL submitted will be wrapped by our CDN before being used, you can use a third party API to turn a local image into a usable URL for within DEV posts.

Thanks very much, this is great! I didn't know about the api docs!
