Import content

squido allows the importing of content from Ghost and Wordpress.

We will use the import command.

Ghost

To import data, you first need to export your data from your Ghost site:

  1. Login to the Ghost admin panel
  2. Select the cog icon at the bottom of the sidebar
  3. Select Labs
  4. Click Export your content

To import that data into squido you need to run this command from the root of your squido website:

$ squido import -f /path/to/file/ghost.json -t ghost

You will see a new folder with all your posts in Markdown format here: /imported.

You can check your files are imported correctly then move your newly imported Markdown files here: /<source dir>/posts.

Wordpress

To import data, you first need to export your data from your Wordpress site:

  1. Login to Wordpress admin panel
  2. Select Tools
  3. Select Export
  4. Click Export all

To import that data into squido you need to run this command from the root of your squido website:

$ squido import -f /path/to/file/wordpress.xml -t wordpress

You will see a new folder with all your posts in Markdown format here: /imported.

You can check your files are imported correctly then move your newly imported Markdown files here: /<source dir>/posts.
