markdown guide

Hi Marcos, other than using RSS you have another option: use the articles API.

@timdeschryver wrote an extension to use it

Basically you'd take your markdown and post it to DEV via the extension.

FYI there's also a feature request to have DEV interact with Git:

i fear that this is out of scope of this awesome community, but maybe you like the idea. on gitlab you can every repo can have a wiki, the wiki can be edited via the normal webinterface but the wiki is a normal git repo so you also can simply clone the wiki repo locally and edit it, push it back or somewhere else.

it would be soooo awesome if i would be able to access my posts like ths. it also would make #219 obsolete


Seems good. I will take a look at this, thank you very much for sharing.


I would public site in a github repo with a static site generator for blogs that posts on github pages and has either native or plugin support for making an rss feed and then adding that URL to


Yes, this might work. I will definitely consider it. Thank you!


Hey Marcos, this seems a nice idea of keeping your blog posts in git and controlling the via git versions. A briefly idea at this time comes on my mind if you use git hooks, and as soon as you push you set a git gook to connect via api and publish the post.


This, looks to me a promising possible way to do it. I will look into the APIs further. Thank you!


Found this post which has a partial solution for this: , cool stuff.

The Art of Programming

One of the most consolidated misconceptions about programming, since the early days, is the idea that such activity is purely technical, completely exact in nature, like Math and Physics. Computation is exact, but programming is not.
