better title for the script

Update to the original Post to Micro.blog script. First time running this action, you will need to provide an app token generated from your profile at Micro.blog
When you run this script you’ll get a question if the post is a draft. If so, you’ll be redirected to the edit-screen, otherwise the post is published.

Steps

  • script

    /*
      post to Micro.blog hosted account
      using Micropub API
    */
    
    // First run, you will be prompted for
    // App Token. Generate tokens on the Micro.blog
    // Account page
    var credential = Credential.create("Micro.blog", "Insert Micro.blog app token generated on Micro.blog account page.");
    
    credential.addTextField("apptoken", "App Token");
    credential.authorize();
    
    var appToken = credential.getValue("apptoken");
    
    // Does it draft?
    let p = Prompt.create();
    p.addSwitch("select-post-status", "Is it a draft", false);
    p.addButton("OK");
    
    if(p.show()){
    if (p.fieldValues["select-post-status"] == true) {
    	var poststatus = "draft";
    } else {
    	var poststatus = "publish";
    }
    }
    
    // Setup micro.blog API and content 
    var endpoint = "https://micro.blog/micropub"
    var content = draft.content
    
    
    // create and post HTTP request
    var http = HTTP.create();
    var response = http.request({
      "url": endpoint,
      "method": "POST",
      "encoding": "form",
      "data": {
        "h": "entry",

      },
      "headers": {
        "Authorization": "Bearer " + appToken
      }
    });
    
    
    var results = JSON.parse(response.responseText);
    if(poststatus != "draft"){
    app.openURL(results.url);
    }else{
    app.openURL(results.edit);
    }
    
    console.log("Response: " + response.statusCode);
    
    if (response.statusCode != 200 && response.statusCode != 202) {
      context.fail();
