@prologic Yes, I'd like to add import from a folder of Markdown files. In the meantime, you might want to check out this script that can do it.

@prologic I used it to import ~1k files. Works well, just let it run and not get worried by all the output as I did. 🙂

@manton my technical chops aren't sufficient to run that script... looking forward to official import tool!

I love Blot.im, but Dropbox is increasingly obnoxious, and micro.blog looks great. I just need to get all my posts into micro.blog to take the plunge

@LTG Thanks, I’ve been think more about this. Leaning to having an import that takes a .zip file of Markdown files.

@manton sounds perfect.

What about metadata? Currently I have simple:

Date: 2020-02-14 Tags: tag1, tag2

kinds of data at the top of each flat file

@LTG Importing some basic metadata will definitely be supported.
