Saving some MyST Markdown blogging links for later

Got distracted by a note from @choldgraf about MyST, a Markdown flavor aimed at technical writing, in a Twitter conversation that was not specifically about MyST.

This distracted me from the NuxtJS blog idea that was distracting me from a Nikola blog idea that was distracting me from an attempt at porting my site to Astro that was distracting me from a Nanoc-in-Python project idea that was distracting me from preparing a client site proposal that was distracting me from Labor Day weekend prep that was distracting me from the work chat that was distracting me from work.

I had a question about using MyST for blogging, but decided to look it up for myself. Then I was going to tweet it but got distracted by the thought that I needed a more persistent record what with all the distraction.

The question I almost tweeted:

Are there plugins or tools for using MyST to author blog posts?

My answer:

Why yes there are! A quick search found these, and there are doubtless other resources.

Could probably even use it in Hugo if I make another neovim plugin for .md.txt files.

Anyways, time to refill the coffee and — flips past the Distraction Cards — work! Oh jeez yeah work.

Did you mention this somewhere? I'd love it if you sent me the link!
