Python Script for migrating from Wordpress to Hugo

| blogging | python | snippets |

Here’s a simple script that I wrote in python for helping to migrate from a wordpress blog to a static hugo site.

from dataclasses import dataclass
from datetime import datetime

import mysql.connector
from jinja2 import Template
from slugify import slugify


@dataclass 
class Post:
    date:datetime
    title:str
    content:str
    filename:str

posts = []

try:

    conn = mysql.connector.connect(
        host='localhost',
        port=3306,
        database='wordpress',
        user='wp_admin',
        password='$YOUR_DB_PASSWORD'
    )

    cursor = conn.cursor()

    query = """
    select post_date, post_title, post_content from $YOUR_POSTS_TABLE 
    where post_type = 'post' 
    order by post_date
    """
    cursor.execute(query)

    rows = cursor.fetchall()

    for row in rows:
        posts.append(Post(row[0], row[1], row[2], slugify(row[1])))

    template = Template("""+++
title = "{{title}}"
date = {{date}}
draft = false
tags = ['']
+++
                    
{{content}}
    """)

    for post in posts:
        path = f"import/{post.date.year}-{post.filename}.md"
        with open(path, "w") as f:
            f.write(
                template.render(
                    title=post.title,
                    date=post.date.strftime('%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S%z'),
                    content=post.content
                )
            )

    print([post.filename for post in posts])

except mysql.connector.Error as e:
    print(e)

finally:
    cursor.close()
    conn.close()
