Update, update!

I just pushed two updates to the tumblelog repository:

  • A new style has been added: thought-provoking.scss.
  • The label format for week can now be specified via the command line.

The default for the latter is 'week %V, %Y' with %V the ISO 8601 week as a decimal number with an optional leading zero and %Y the four digit year.

SEO friendly titles are coming

I just finished an update to the Perl version of tumblelog which makes it possible to give each day page a title. This is more SEO friendly. Tomorrow, I'll port this to the Python version and make both available on GitHub

Emacs font lock

I have been playing with font lock in Emacs and managed to give a specific face to each line starting with an ISO date. I use this in Markdown mode in which I write this blog. I will blog about this on my main blog tomorrow.
