After feeling not so comfortable with blogdown/Hugo I tried Quarto blog and felt like at home! The one thing I am currently missing: Is there a simple way to create a new post with a populated YAML header? Something similar to the blogdown "New Post" RStudio plugin? It is a bit tedious to copy the structure of my YAML header into every new post.
I tried to put my YAML fields into
_metadata.yml at the highest level of the "posts" folder. After rendering, I can see that this works, but I cannot see and edit these YAML fields during writing the individual blog post. Rather to provide empty strings or dummy text, that cannot edit inside the post, I am looking for a template with variables.
I am almost certain that there is a simple solution, but I couldn't find it.
