I was looking for a simple and quick way to start a little blog. Preverably cheaply (free) hosted.
I quickly found out that you could do that on github and you need a static website. Best blogging solution is Jekyll.
But for all my hobby projects I us Haxe, so I was looking for someone who had the same idea and did the heavy lifting for me.
Haxe has a very active communinity so it was not that difficult to find: Tong created Cyberchrist a Blog generator tool.
Sadly the project doesn't work out-of-the-box, so I need to rewrite/refector/recode.
That is also the reason I renamed the project to CyberMonk.
Based upon the excellent work of Tong, I start with cyberchrist version 0.3.2 but, because of some rewriting, the first version of CyberMonk will be 0.4.0.
The project is written in Haxe and copiled to Neko
if you want to compile it yourself you need to install (besides Haxe) the next libs:
haxelib install markdown haxelib install mconsole
An icon from flaticon.com
Haxe (lib) Markdown
Haxe templates http://old.haxe.org/doc/cross/template
