I would like to write things like LaTex with Wordpress i.e. a title would be a section, to use vimlatex -plugin to speed up writing etc. Also, it would be cool if I could publish things without going into the Graphical interface. I like to use my own editor and see things in the directory level. Is there some easy way to write things there without opening a browser?

Suppose I had 3 categories: A) Fun, B) Future and B) Past. My writing directory would look like this

$ pwd
$ tree
├── fun
│   ├── chess
│   ├── climbing_game
│   ├── go
│   └── zero_match
├── future
│   └── project_improbable
└── past
    ├── test1
    └── test2

then with permissions $ chmod +r fun/go or some other way, I could publish things. I could change permission the day when I want to publish something. Is there something this dead easy done with WordPress?

Look at codex.wordpress.org/XML-RPC_Support and the dozens of projects that work with WordPress from the outside. Not the exact concept of chmodding and directories but when there's a will there's a way. – soulseekah Mar 11 '12 at 14:34
How about this one? github.com/andreascreten/wp-cli – Barry Carlyon Mar 12 '12 at 2:54

Though I have not used these, I'm sure one of them will help out.
