TextMate and Community Server 2008.5

21 May 2009 » » textmate, tools

This is my first blog post from TextMate on my Mac. I’m using the HTML formatting. I will try the markdown and textile versions later. The key to getting this working with Community Server was when you click “Bundles->Blogging->Setup Blogs” and the following template shows up:

# List of Blogs
# Enter a blog name followed by the endpoint URL
# Blog Name URL

you put the following underneath the commented header

My Blog Name http://username@www.mydomain.com/blogs//metablog.ashx#

The key part is #. api_key in Community Server terms is the portion of your url after domain/blogs/ and before the page requested. Mine is jason_meridth. My full URL for TextMate blogging would be http://myusername_notsharing@www.lostechies.com/blogs/jason_meridth/metablog.ashx#jason_meridth.

Hope this may help a fellow Mac brethren
