This is a really good idea with great potential. Image a standarized API for different blogs. You can automatize publishing and editing, multiple collaborators. And use a git provider as unique source of content.

And you can also make your git repo as some sort of blog. I'll use it for my next posts for sure.

Thanks!

Hi Brian,

This is a really good idea with great potential

Thanks! I do intend to push it further and someone else plans to help me out :)!

Image a standarized API for different blogs

That was the original purpose. But I realized it wouldn't fit into a hackday so I decided to get the project up and running with support for only one "publisher" (dev.to). My original though was that I'd build something completely abstract and we could choose for one article to publish on multiple "publisher" at the same time (dev.to, medium, etc).

And you can also make your git repo as some sort of blog

Definitely!

I'll use it for my next posts for sure.

Awesome, glad to hear that! =)
