In order to make an auto title plugin for markata I needed to come up with a way to reverse the slug of a post to create a title for one that does not explicitly have a title.
!!! Note "slugs" a slug is generally all lowercase and free of spaces, and is a way to make website routes (urls)
Here I have a
path available that gives me the articles path, ex.
python-reverse-sluggify.md. An easy way to get rid of the file
extension, is to pass it into pathlib.Path and ask for the stem, which
python-reverse-sluggify. Then from There I chose to replace
_ with a space.
article["title"] = ( Path(article["path"]).stem.replace("-", " ").replace("_", " ").title() )
To turn this into a markata plugin I put it into a pre_render hook.
from pathlib import Path from markata.hookspec import hook_impl, register_attr @hook_impl @register_attr("articles") def pre_render(markata) -> None: for article in markata.filter('title==""'): article["title"] = ( Path(article["path"]).stem.replace("-", " ").replace("_", " ").title() )
