My writing process was simple: - write the beginning and initial Python portion - pass out - wake up at 0600 not knowing who or where I am - see this code and continue it - pass out again - wake up at 1700 knowing who but not where I am - write most of the rest - pass out again - wake up half an hour later, finish It's organized in sections though it doesn't appear to be organized whatsoever: #!/bin/sh set -ex mkdir -p blah python -c " import os os.chdir('blah') with open('../$0', 'r') as f: for day in'\n\n\n'): if day.split('\n')[0] == '#!/bin/sh': prefix = '\n'.join( day.split('\n')[ day.split('\n').index('exit 0')+1: ] ) + '\n' continue elif day.split('\n')[0][:4] == '<!--': suffix = day continue with open(day.split('\n')[0]+'.html', 'x') as g: g.write(prefix + day + '\n' + suffix) " This splits the blog into days, where each day is delimited by three newlines. Every day is two lines apart. A day that starts with the POSIX shell shebang is the /prefix/, which is prepended to each day. It cuts off everything until after "exit 0", the end of the script, and after that is the actual HTML prefix to each blah page. A day that starts as an HTML comment is the /suffix/, appended to each day. This obligates an HTML comment at the end of each post, the same comment, so I just made it something sort of interesting yet sort of bog standard. I explained this poorly but I spread the code out so it's a little easier to read, I think it's pretty simple. /main/blog, you can see how it's laid out. Each day, prefixed and suffixed, is output as its own [day].html to the created blah/ directory. Next: cd blah for f in *.html do test -z "$last" || sed -i \ -e "s,_NAVIGATION_,$nav<A HREF=\"$f\">\></A></P>," "$last" nav="<P>" test -z "$last" \ || nav="$nav<A HREF=\"$last\">\<</A>" nav="$nav<A HREF=\"index.html\">^</A>" last="$f" done sed -i "s,_NAVIGATION_,$nav</P>," "$last" This replaces _NAVIGATION_ with an actual navigation bar. The actual string has two underscores before and after NAVIGATION but this blog is held together with shoelaces and bubble gum and I don't wanna fuck around and find out. I don't know how this works, I let my fingers handle the flow. (The secret is that I just run it in my head and adjust the beginnings and ends until it runs in my head for two times correctly. Then as long as state doesn't drift it's all good. This is fucky and I don't know how to explain it and I don't really know how it all goes about but you can do really complex but really really tight program flow just by vibing against it and letting your fingers tap tap tap, yknow?) Next: for f in *.html do fi="$(echo "$f" | cut -d . -f 1)" test "$fi" = "index" \ && continue printf '<A HREF="/blah/%s.html">%s</A>\n' "$fi" "$fi" done \ | sort -r \ | sed \ -e "1i\ <!DOCTYPE html>blah
.." \
			-e '$a
' \ > index.html exit 0 This takes all the files in blah/, builds an index, adds a prefix and suffix to the stream, and outputs it all to blah/index.html in one go. This is the simplest part of the script and I was worried it would be hard but it wasn't really, it just required a little bit of embracing of UNIX piping.
