Blot locations test

1. Serving with Marked 2 from journal_entry

I would say that Marked 2 doesn’t read underscores, as in *_assets* correctly.

journal_entry: /Users/ge/Dropbox/arts-and-science/journal/2021/2021-01-16-blot-file-location-test.md

_assets/obelix.png does not work

2. Serving with Blot.im from post_file_to_be_created

Conclusions

location of asset location of obelix.png served by
marked 2 blot.im both
journal_entry images/obelix.png
journal_entry _assets/images/obelix.png
journal_entry _assets/obelix.png
post_directory images/obelix.png
post_directory _assets/2021/01/16/images/obelix.png
post_directory _assets/images/obelix.png
post_directory _assets/obelix.png

As you can see, image files will be served from ./images/ directory by both Marked 2 and Blot.im.

The problem is that files in the ./images/ directory will be found and served by Blot.im, something that I don’t want to happen.

The problem with the *./_assets* directory is that Marked 2 messes with the underscore and can’t seem to find it. Backslash escapes don’t seem to help.

I conclude therefore that when moving posts from the journal to blot-im, I have to do two things:

  1. Move ./images/, ./jpg/, .pdf, etc. to the *_assets* folder in the post_directory
  2. Modify references to these assets in the Markdown files.

Task #1 is relatively easy. Task #2 is relatively difficult.
