(or: reinventing PLog, one piece at a time.)
I wanted to add images to the blog, and as I'm fed up with ImageMagick I
was relieved to find that someone has written a more usable replacement for
perl called Imager. You'll need to
install that first, and it should be as easy as politely asking CPAN to
do it for you. Also you'll need
so you can invoke the method in your stories. Here's the code:
The instructions are in the script. It's still quite rough, and I'll be updating it as I go along. Take a good look at your error logs if things don't work.
The existing Blosxom image plugins are a lot fancier than this; I just
wanted something that generates thumbnails and automatically adds the
requisite attributes to the
img tag. This photo is from my trip
up to Berilee last month — if you squint you can see the car ferry at
Berowra Waters. The markup is:
<@img.img src="IMG_1667.JPG" style="border-style: none; margin: 0 0 10px 10px; float: right; clear: right;" />
<a href="http://localhost/~peteg/images/IMG_1667.JPG">< img src="http://localhost/~peteg/images/cache/tn_IMG_1667.JPG" width="93" height="70" style="border-style: none; margin: 0 0 10px 10px; float: right; clear: right;" alt="" />< /a>
I get the impression that the
interpolate_fancy plugin doesn't
like having newlines in the arguments.
...and yes, I am vaguely aware that those suckling on the RSS nipple are not getting the full technicolour experience. Bear with me.
