Microblog server

Python backend for a low-volume personal microblog.

Input server (Telegram bot) waits for user to post new microblog entries and saves them to storage (git repo). Entries can be fetched from storage via provided Python library. There is also a plugin for Pelican to render microblog entries on a static web site.

Input server and storage engine should be easy to replace or add new implementations in future.

Installation

  • Python package is published at PyPI: https://pypi.org/project/microblog-server/

    • Install with pip install microblog-server
    • Make sure that git is available in $PATH
  • Ready to go Docker image is also available

Usage

Running input server
  • Commandline entrypoint: microblog
  • Configuration is done via environment variables:
    • MICROBLOG_STORAGE: Path to a local checkout of git repository that stores the microblog
    • MICROBLOG_TOKEN: Telegram bot token
    • MICROBLOG_USERS: Comma-separated list of Telegram accounts allowed to interact with the bot
Using Python library to read microblog from storage

See the source code

Rendering static web site

See Pelican docs for general information on using static site generator.

Plugin configuration:

# pelicanconf.py
import microblog.pelican
import microblog.storage
PLUGINS = [
    microblog.pelican,
]
MICROBLOG = microblog.storage.GitStorage('./path/to/local/copy/of/git/repo/')

Your theme is expected to provide the following templates:

  • micros for paginated microblog index (example)
  • micro for individual microblog entries (example)

Check plugin source for further information. See author's site configuration for further examples.
