@ploum @write_as If you use or are OK with MarkDown, it's pretty much a dream. I wanted exactly this product - turn plain MarkDown into clean blog posts. There's no formatting toolbar; that doesn't bother me, but it might bother you.
If you have a Pro account, I know you can style the blog with CSS; I only am on a Casual and can't really speak to that.
Here's a longform post I wrote with write.as
@microwavenby I've made a note of this as an idea on our public roadmap: https://trello.com/c/Jtw7Aoaq/79-blog-as-a-git-repo
I think that'd be pretty awesome too! And definitely doable with the way the platform is set up 👍
@ploum Very cool. Well I took a look and it doesn't seem like there's any way to directly extend it -- short of them integrating directly with Write.as, automatic syncing would mean something like us integrating with Dropbox or iCloud.
But for now, you could always use the post importer utility we have here: https://dl.write.as
It lets you import plain text / Markdown files directly from your computer.
@ploum This tool is made mostly for importing posts, so it's not really built for updates. Our full-featured CLI (https://write.as/apps/cli) would be more for the entire process of updating and managing posts, but unfortunately it doesn't support Write.as accounts/blogs yet. So I'd say once that support is there, that'd be the best tool to use for your whole workflow.
