node package manager



Create a new link post entry in a Kirby blog using the command line.


You need to have node and npm installed and a Kirby blog setup as described in this blog post by the creator of Kirby.

You also need to set up a custom post type for link posts as discribed in this blog post. The textfiles for link post have to be called as proposed in that post.

You need to create at least the first post manually if you don't have any posts yet.

Getting Started

Install the module with: npm install -g kirby-linkpost


To create create a new link post in your Kirby blog setup move into the directory of your Kirby blog e.g.:

cd ~/Dropbox/code/myAwesomeKirbyBlog

and call

klp 'Title Of Post'

The second argument providing the external link is optional.

The script will create a new directory in /content/01-blog/. The name of of the directory will be prefixed with the correct number followed by a slug generated from the provided title of the post.

Then it will create a file in that directory called and fill in the template for a link post including title and the external link if a second argument is provided.

And lastly it opens that file with the subl command. If you want the script to open it with a different text editor you will have to provide a different command in the script directly.

Just set var callFavTextEditor = 'subl' to the command of your choice.
