# Gardener 🌱
This is a tool for making a weed.
: short for "web feed"
: an rss-only blog
(All of the content is in the RSS feed. There is no web content.)
## About
This uses pandoc's `--template` flag to create an rss feed item.
See `feed.tmpl`.
## Motivation
RSS is dead, but we never stopped using it.
We are the necromancers who fill it with the foul mimicry of life.
## Requirements
- [pandoc](
- [casey/just](
- [sharkdp/fd](
## Getting Started
1. Edit the `vars` section at the top of the justfile
2. Edit the `author` tag in `feed.tmpl`. Or, as a learning exercise, change the contents of the tag to `$author$` and start including an "author" value in the front matter of all your markdown sources. See how that works?
3. Create a new markdown file in `/src`
4. Give it the following YAML metadata block
title: 'title of my post'
created_at: 'Mon, 24 Jan 2022 17:26:03 -0700'
Note that values need to be quoted.
Note further that the timestamp should in RFC 5532 format. (`date -R`)
5. Write the rest of your post
6. Run `just build` to assemble your xml
7. Edit the `up` recipe in the justfile so you can upload to your server.
8. If you're feeling swoopy, run `just all` to build and upload in one fell swoop.
## Acknowledgments
Thanks to the #basement crew for making such a lovely garden full of beautiful weeds <3
