… well the name reminds Brad Choate’s Textmate blogging bundle Brad is an excellent developer and like me, was once a Delphi (Borland great product) developer. I based this on his Textmate work. I’m coding a Vi / ViM / GViM script for a plugin that has some nice results already, exclusively for geek bloggers. Brad’s bundle has a very nice image automation/integration that this one won’t have. SSH images to the server then manually link to them.
Some of the features/ideas/facts include:
- vimblog.vim file including directives, function and ruby script (VIM:: class)
- syntax highlighting: different between vi/vim and gvim (richer color handling);
- XMLRPC access to blog;
- exception handling in ruby script and vi function script
- categories insertion freedom
- buffer selection
- is being tested for Wordpress xmlrpc using mt.calls
- future: multiple blog / user definition (via switch); window selection;…
- Vi command line usage definition as:
:Blog option [*args]
- rp [x] => show recent [x] posts
- np => create a new post
- gp [id] => get complete post with id [id]
- publish => publish an edited/new post
- draft => save edited/new post as draft
Hope to release it real soon. I need it to my own usage (remember Kathy Sierra ?).

From the site:
“VIM stands for Vi IMproved. Most of VIM was made by Bram Moolenaar, but only through the help of many others. Vim is charityware. Its license is GPL-compatible, so it’s distributed freely, but we ask that if you find it useful you make a donation to help children in Uganda through the ICCF“
