After far more work than I intended, instead of just a quick and dirty modification of exitwp-to-hugo to use Python3 I’ve written a completely new Python scripts called wpxr-to-static.
I am pleased to announce that it’s ready for eyeballs and initial comments although not regular use, especially by less technical users (hence the alpha monicker).
I hope that some folks will find the current state interesting enought to look at, and will be continuing to work on it, along with my theme and debug stuff for Hugo, over the coming month.
In any event you can find it at:
There is no documentation except the source and config file comments at the moment, but that will be improved soon.
[EDIT]: Two additional notes:
- It seems I managed to introduce a couple of whitespace errors between my last test and initial release; that has been been fixed now. The problems with trying to finalizing when falling asleep at the keyboard…
- The results are almost usable as an initial converted version of the site, just by adding a theme, but is currently missing the homepage. I’m wondering if I should add some kind of root _index.md so that most themes will work correctly. What do folks think?
