I switched roots@latest to 3.1.0. should have done this long ago, sorry for the delay
should have no more issues with fresh installs
@michaelkornblum Sorry I don't have the time to hammer this out with you at the moment, but might in the next couple days. Their API docs are great though, you would just have to run loops with month comparisons. Most of it would just be maps and reduces, array operations with comparators through moment's functions

my blog project sometimes says a function is undefined while rendering the _single.jade page. it's very occasional, and generally will fix itself and finish the rendering on a different pass (few ms later). anyone else had this? i'm passing in locals, so my assumption is that a local wasnt provided, or truly the render pipeline got ahead of itself.
i've turned jade debug on, and the error hasnt happened again lol, so i have no clues to go on. using 3.1.0. thanks for any clues y'all have.

@jenius Not a problem, man. I used a combination of moment.js and lodash to get the posts grouped by month and year. The reason I was looking for this functionality, is because I'm currently creating a template theme for Roots that looks and acts like WordPress. Once it's ready for showtime, I
Once, it's ready for showtime, I'll make another announcement in the room :)

@michaelkornblum that sounds super interesting!
would love to see if we could get that to work with the CMS for static site generators we’re working on at netlify

absolutely, props for working on this
also would be interesting to see it work backed by wordpress itself haha
which is also possible through netlify
just for the sake of wordpress domination

honestly wish i had more time to push improvements into roots and work on this sort of thing
in about 5 months i'll be on the clock for 5x my current number of working hours, and should be able to ramp it up quite a bit
for now, thanks to everyone for still pushing ahead with stuff!

@biilmann the repo is at https://github.com/michaelkornblum/roots-template-blog-deluxe. As stated before, its still in its beginning stages but once its finished it'll be a fully functional template theme that will be downloadable using Root's Sprout component. The main purpose for the project is to create an equivalent to the Hyde and Poole themes used by Jekyll with some added WordPress style functionality.
