This blog is running on Octopress, which is an awesome implementation of a blogging engine in Ruby.

To create a new post, you need to run a rake task like so:

rake new_post["some awesome post title"]

The problem is, that in zsh, those are escaped and you get an error.

I used to do new_post without anything and then edit the file name and the title inside the file BUT there’s actually a better way.

You can either run noglob rake or you can run the rake like this:

rake "new_post[some awesome post title]"
