Org-roam to blog

Does anyone have any recommendations for publishing a blog based on one’s org-roam folder?

I don’t think this exists yet, but what would also be ideal is a clickable graph that navigates to the entry clicked on.

Something like mermaid could be used for this. Would anyone be interested in helping me develop this?

Right now, we’re focussed on v2 which introduced a significant change to our underlying model. As a result, we’d rather delay the discussion of modules—e.g. org-roam-server, or the blog-publishing workflow you suggest—until we’ve figured it out.

If you want to just use a packaged solution, you can look at

Org-roam files are ultimately just Org files, so anything that publishes Org files should work.

This is just what I was looking for, thanks!

Firn won’t be able to handle that, though. If you meant something à la Obsidian, that will require some engineering.

I’m thinking about generating a mermaid-js graph based on connections between org-roam notes and inserting it into the html output of Firn.

You could, yes; but ultimately, since Firn is only about org-mode, a homebrew solution for publishing notes and properly translating the ID-links would probably be best. I’m not sure how Firn handles ID-links, for instance.

There’s also this, specific to org-roam:

FWIW I use ox-hugo to publish my notes generated with org-roam, with a little configuration Hugo generates backlinks to a note and on the org-roam side just adding the export-file-name header to the capture template. This doesn’t include the visual graph though.
