blaze-init - creates or recovers a BlazeBlogger repository


blaze-init [-fqV] [-b directory]

blaze-init -h|-v


blaze-init either creates a fresh new BlazeBlogger repository, or recovers an existing one in case it is corrupted. Optionally, it can also revert a configuration and default templates to their original state, leaving all user data (that is, both blog posts and pages) intact.


-b directory, --blogdir directory
Allows you to specify a directory in which the BlazeBlogger repository is to be blaced. The default option is a current working directory.
-f, --force
Reverts existing configuration, theme, and language files to their initial state. By default, these files are kept intact.
-q, --quiet
Disables displaying of unnecessary messages.
-V, --verbose
Enables displaying of all messages, including a list of created files.
-h, --help
Displays usage information and exits.
-v, --version
Displays version information and exits.


Create a new blog in a current directory:

  ~]$ blaze-init
  Created a BlazeBlogger repository in .blaze.

Create a new blog in ~/public_html:

  ~]$ blaze-init -b ~/public_html
  Created a BlazeBlogger repository in /home/joe/public_html/.blaze.

Revert a configuration file and default templates to their initial state:

  ~]$ blaze-init -f

Or if you want to see what files have been reverted:

  ~]$ blaze-init -fV
