Manual import into Perch blog

Following on from the re-indexing post, here is some code we've used to create blog post entries within Perch CMS

$API = new PerchAPI(1.0, 'perch_blog');
$Posts = new PerchBlog_Posts($API);
$Template = $API->get('Template');
$Template->set('blog/post.html', 'blog');
$post['postTitle'] = "TEST POST";
$post['postDateTime'] = date('Y-m-d H:i:s');
$post['postStatus'] = 'Draft';
$post['postDescRaw'] = "Stuff\nMore stuff";
$post['postDescHTML'] = "


More stuff

"; // JSON encoded fields $fields=array(); $fields['excerpt']['raw'] = "This is the excerpt"; $fields['excerpt']['processed'] = "

This is the excerpt

"; $fields['image']['_default'] = "/perch/resources/june14-1.jpg"; $fields['image']['path'] = basename("/perch/resources/june14-1.jpg"); $fields['image']['bucket'] = "default"; $fields['image']['sizes']['thumb']['w'] = 100; $fields['image']['sizes']['thumb']['path'] = $fields['image']['path']; $fields['image']['sizes']['thumb']['mime'] = "image\/jpeg"; $post['postDynamicFields'] = PerchUtil::json_safe_encode($fields); $Post = $Posts->create($post, $Template); $Post->index();

Hopefully the above may be useful to someone else
