I added this note from org mode

Trying an experiment with setting up a capture template so ox-hugo can add short notes to the site.

I built up the ox-hugo capture sample to get my preferred SECTION/YEAR/MONTH/STUB folder layout.

(defun org-hugo-note-capture-template () "Returns `org-capture' template string for new site note." (let* ((title (read-from-minibuffer "Title: ")) (fname (org-hugo-slug title)) (year (format-time-string "%Y")) (month (format-time-string "%m"))) (mapconcat #'identity `( ,(concat "* TODO " title) ":properties:" ,(concat ":export_hugo_bundle: " (mapconcat #'identity (list year month fname) "/")) ":export_file_name: index" ":end:" "%?\n") "\n")))

Then the important bits of my capture template…

(use-package org :custom (org-capture-templates (quote ("s" "Site") ("sn" "Note" entry (file+olp+datetree bmw/org-site "Notes") (function org-hugo-note-capture-template)))))

Eventually I got it right, and C-c c s n brought me to this buffer, where I’m editing a note that’s already longer than I usually intend these to be.

* Notes :properties: :export_hugo_section: note :end: ** 2020 *** 2020-10 October **** 2020-10-24 Saturday ***** TODO I added this note from org mode :emacs: :properties: :export_hugo_bundle: 2020/10/i-added-this-note-from-org-mode :export_file_name: index :end: Trying an experiment: setting up a [[https://orgmode.org/manual/Capture-templates.html][capture template]] so [[https://ox-hugo.scripter.co/][ox-hugo]] can add short notes to the site.

Still loads to figure out — for example, how will I get cover images working? But at least I proved to myself that it works.

Back to fixing the broken IndieWeb mentions, which is why I opened my editor a couple of hours ago.
