📜 About

  • Pages are authored in HTML or, optionally, Twig and live in the src/pages directory.
  • Twig templates and partials live in src/templates.
  • Site data files live in src/data. Drop any .json, .yml, or .js file exporting a function into this directory and access the resulting data in Twig templates using {{['path/to/file.ext'] }}. Powered by Puppy.
  • Styles are authored with Sass and live in src/scss.
  • Javascripts live in src/js. They are transipiled at build time with Babel so that they can take advantage of modern JS syntax
  • Any files in the public directory are copied to the web root recursively at build time.
  • Static assets are bundled at build time using Webpack.
  • All source assets are pulled together with Gulp and used to generate a static site in the dist directory.

Thumbnail Previews

You can capture screenshots of your pages by setting the thumbnail attribute to auto in your page's front matter header:

thumbnail: auto

The next time you run npm run build a screenshot will be generated for that page and displayed in the prototype index.

If the automated screenshots aren't cutting it, you can provide your own by dropping an image into the public/thumbnails directory and referencing its name in your page's front matter header:

Page: src/pages/example.html

Thumbnail: public/screenshots/example.png

Front Matter:

thumbnail: example.png


The output of npm run build is a static site. You can drop the resulting dist directory on any web server.

An excellent choice is Netlify.

You can deploy your work to Netlify with their CLI tool.

npm install netlify-cli -g
netlify init
netlify deploy
