Blog Anniversary: 500 posts

This blog now has more than 500 posts.

1. Data. Generating static HTML files with Simplified Saaze shows number of posts:

$ time php saaze -mortb /tmp/build
Building static site in /tmp/build...
        execute(): filePath=/home/klm/php/sndsaaze/content/aux.yml, nentries=6, totalPages=1, entries_per_page=20
        execute(): filePath=/home/klm/php/sndsaaze/content/blog.yml, nentries=412, totalPages=21, entries_per_page=20
        execute(): filePath=/home/klm/php/sndsaaze/content/gallery.yml, nentries=6, totalPages=1, entries_per_page=20

The number of posts, excluding index.md.

Nr Type number
1 aux 6
2 blog 412
3 gallery 6
4 music 61
5 error 1
  sum 486

Over the years the posts are distributed as follows, not counting the 14 index.md posts. Two posts have index: false in their frontmatter, and one post has draft: true, see Simplified Saaze. Therefore these posts do not show in the count from php saaze.

2. Counting content. Below Perl script blogyrcnt counts posts per year.

#!/bin/perl -W
# Count number of posts per year

use strict;
my %H;

while (<>) {
    $H{$1} += 1 if (/\.\/(\d\d\d\d)\/\d\d\-\d\d\-/);
}

for (sort keys %H) {
    printf("%4d: %d\n",$_,$H{$_});
}

Run script as follows: Go to content/blog directory, then find . | sort | blogyrcnt. Similarly for content/music.

As of 15-Apr-2024 this blog has 578 entries.
