Added function so whatever rags you set in Drafts are retained on omg.lol

This action creates a new post on omg.lol’s weblog service, weblog.lol.

This script will take the first line of your draft and set it as title, and everything else as body. A new Draft is created in Archive with omg.lol weblog frontmatter(date, tags, title), your content is added, and the file published to omg.lol weblog. Your original is moved to Trash.

The title in Drafts will be escaped with // this makes it so you can see the title in Drafts, but omg.lol will ignore it.

You’ll need an omg.lol account, and the API key for that account. You’ll be asked for both during first run.

    var credential = Credential.create("omg.lol weblog", "Store your omg.lol API key username privately");
    credential.addTextField("omg_username", "Your username");
    credential.addPasswordField("omg_api_key", "API Key");
    credential.authorize();
    
    // Get the values and store them: 
    let omg_api_key = credential.getValue("omg_api_key")
    let omg_username = credential.getValue("omg_username")
    
    var d = new Date("2015-12-01 21:15");
    
    var content = draft.processTemplate("[[weblog]]");
    
    var random = Math.random().toString().substr(2, 8);
    
      var http = HTTP.create();

    	"data": { "content": content},
