Sometimes I have the following ideas about blogging and other writing for the web. The thing is that these ideas will not apply in the same way to other people. I think some of the points can be generalized for other people and applications.
These blog posts on this website are written with Vim and a few scripts through a SSH connection to my server.
I would like to use Vim to edit my blog posts.
Vim should be able to edit a URL and use GET and PUT to read and write the page.
Ideally the GET will only supply the content of the page; the navigation surrounding the content should be added later by the blogging software.
Starting a new blog posts should be as easy as POSTing to a URL.
The same as I use Vim for the text parts of the website, I want to use Gimp to be able to edit pictures.
The text of the blog posts can be written in HTML or Markdown (which is what I use at the moment).
Navigation should be added later. Content can be edited. The user doesn’t have to update headers and footers for each page.
All programs should be able to GET, PUT, POST to URLs. DELETE could be implemented in the browser.
HTML will stay the main language for publishing content on the internet.
The website should add the headers and footers for the user.
