Git endpoint for content in WordPress

A horrid, crazy idea: a Git endpoint for the content in my WordPress install.

One step back to the problem I’m trying to solve. More and more, I enjoy writing in Markdown with iA Writer. “Publishing” whatever document I’ve written generally involves hitting the Preview button in iA Writer, and then copy and pasting text into WordPress. Yes, the same workflow I’ve been preaching against for years.

I wish I could have a Git checkout of content in WordPress, make edits locally using my editor of choosing, commit, and push back to master. I’m aware of Jeykll and the other hipster “content management systems”, however I’m still an old-school content in a database kind of guy.

PressFS + `git init`, might just work…
