[lhtml] Fix usage of break, avoid string creation


Luapress v3.3.1

Luapress is yet another static site generator, written in Lua, with posts in markdown. It's simple, fast and supports both plugins and templates.

Quick Start

Install with Luarocks:

luarocks install luapress

Create a new site in some directory (you can optionally specify --lhtml to use the LHTML default template over the mustache one):

luapress init URL [--lhtml]

Drop Markdown files in posts/ & pages/ and build with:


Now, just upload the contents of build/ to the web.

Next Steps

Luapress offers many other features, which are documented on it's website:


I'm using it for my blog, Pointless Ramblings. The Luapress website itself is also powered by Luapress :).
