Lunch-hour feature in Nikola: Blogger import

Today at lunch, I added support for importing blogger (maybe also blogspot? They seem to be the same nowadays) blogs into Nikola my static blog/site engine.

What works?

Well, the only site I tried works, mostly.

  • Posts
  • Pages
  • Tags
  • Drafts
  • Blog Metadata (except language)
  • Redirects to keep URLs stable (at least it tries really hard!)
  • URL rewriting in the posts (it tries!)
What's not there?
  • Comments import (it makes more sense to import them via Disqus' import tool)
  • Attachments (images and such)
  • Much testing

It's basically on par with the Wordpress import, except noone has used it for real. So, feel free to try!
