Posting to Hugo from Drafts

I’ve recently been playing with the popular Drafts app (macOS, iOS, and iPadOS) and I think I get it. It’s not yet essential to me, but the actions are quite powerful and I can Drafts becoming essential after a little while.

Earlier this year I setup an automation to post from Craft (my long term text app of choice) to It works but I question whether or not a blog post really needs to be in my knowledge base. When I started using Drafts it occurred to me that it might be a better fit and the actions would make the automations less janky.

So here we are. This post is coming from Drafts after getting familiar with the Actions script reference, I was able to post this from Drafts, which is pretty cool.

More to come on this topic, but it’s late and I needed a test post!
