v0.1.13 released

Posted Sunday, May 13 at 11:14 PM (2 years ago)

Two major updates for v0.1.13:

  • Rewrote the pagination logic to actually work across category-recursive views, and to support pagination where the sort order isn’t necessarily the same between renders
  • Refactored images so that the template image() function has access to the tag writer

These changes were made as part of migrating over to Publ, which I’ve made a lot of progress on now. It’s pretty nice getting my overall design proven out, and to shake out all the little bugs and misfeatures.

Hopefully soon I’ll have Publ in a state where I feel comfortable releasing it as beta.

v0.1.12 changes

Posted Saturday, May 12 at 12:35 PM (2 years ago)

I just released v0.1.12 which adds a couple of quick, minor-ish fixes to Unicode handling; in particular:

  • UTF-8-containing headers no longer get MIME-mangled on first import
  • I finally made the automatic slug text way better by switching to awesome-slugify

So, now it’s no longer US-English-centric, at least. Right now it just uses the defaults; at some point I’ll want to make it so that you can configure a site’s or entry’s language locale so that things work better on that end too.

Now with ∞% more OpenGraph support

I have now implemented the basic OpenGraph API to Publ, so now a template can generate an OpenGraph card with entry.card. So in theory when this entry gets autoposted to Twitter, this first paragraph should appear, as should the below image:


Anyway that’s what’s new in v0.1.11 (as well as a bunch of internal refactoring to support this addition).

Even more updates, v0.1.10 released

Posted Wednesday, May 9 at 11:29 PM (2 years ago)

If you are reading this, it means that Publ v0.1.10 is out. This release is mostly about a few cleanups, such as:

  • No longer nests a <div> for an image gallery inside of a containing <p> (which both fixes an HTML validation error and makes styling more controllable)
  • Cleans up error handling somewhat
  • Also cleans up a bunch of code for property caching

But there’s also a new feature, namely view.range, which you can read about over in the API docs.

I am also making significant progress in porting my main website over to Publ and hopefully I’ll have something to show for it soon. (And I promise it looks way nicer than this site!)
