🏗 Structure

The base structure of this template is the same as Sapper's default template. These are some of the new things you'll find here:


This is the home of your blog. The most important files in here are:

  • _posts.js: this module contains the logic for loading and parsing your markdown posts.
  • [slug].svelte: this is the template of your blog post page.
  • index.svelte: this is the template of your article list page.


This is where your markdown posts live in. All .md files in this directory are treated as blog posts and parsed automatically by the _posts.js module.

  • The markdown file name becomes the post slug. For example becomes http://localhost:3000/blog/hello-world.
  • Everything between the start of the post and the <!-- more --> tag becomes the article's "excerpt".
  • Frontmatter properties supported are title and date.
