New Nikola Feature: wordpress.com Importer

I im­ple­ment­ed a first drat of a word­press.­com im­porter for my Niko­la stat­ic site/blog gen­er­a­tor It's a work in progress but it works well enough that it can turn this blog in­to this blog

What work­s:

  • Posts

  • Pages

  • Drafts

  • Tags

  • Per­­son­al in­­­for­­ma­­tion

What does­n't work:

  • Com­­ments

  • Links across post­s/­­pages are left un­­touched

  • The out­­put is pret­­ty gen­er­ic

This needs testing, so feel free to get master and try it. Asuming foo.xml is your data from wordpress.com:

nikola_import_wordpress foo.xml
cd new_site
doit && doit serve

And point your brows­er to http://lo­cal­host:8000 to see the re­sult :-)

Minor tweaking of the generated conf.py is generally needed for improved results.
