recently i have been written a piece of software, which can sync diaspora stream to hugo blog. hugo is a static site generator. you provide it markdown files, and a theme, and it generates you html/css files.

the main intention was, to get the own tag cloud, and better navigation of all my streams. every post synced from diaspora has a link to the original post on my pod. now it is indeed very pleasurable to see all my history categorized, and i am able to find exact post very easy. yesterday someone asked me about the post from the winter 2014, and it took me a couple of minutes to find it.

the software is written in Oberon, of course. i am trying to write everything, what is possible in Oberon. in order to keep the language alive. and I used my compiler to write it.

So this is the software: https://github.com/norayr/diaspora2hugo I have to make a readme, document it. And I realize that it’s not easy to use it, because first one needs to download an Oberon compiler, in order to compile the program. But I doubt anyone would use it anyway. Also, because in order to use it you have to be a podmin.

so, how does it work? you call

d2h <username>

lets say, I write

d2h norayr

and get markdown files for all my public posts from postgre database. the files look like 2018-12-24_3407245_spyurk.md

i. e. year-month-day_post_id_spyurk,md (spyurk means diaspora in armenian, also that’s my pod name).

But then, I need to update the blog, starting from the last post. No problem!

d2h <username> <last_post_id>

i also added a cron job, which runs a script every night, and syncs diaspora to hugo blog starting from the last post. #diaspora #hugo #blog #migration #sync #cron #oberon #vishap #markdown

Then, slowly, as the roots settle in the new soil and the tree bends patiently toward the new roots, the old roots slowly lift into the air. The whole process for the tree to relocate to a new place with better sunlight and more solid ground can take a couple of years.

however our (armenian) trees did not learn to migrate yet. very unadvisably, i would say.
