Please take a moment and donate to nanoc. A lot of time has gone into developing nanoc, and I would like to keep the current pace. Your support will ensure that nanoc will continue to improve.
nanoc is a simple but very flexible static site generator written in Ruby. It operates on local files, and therefore does not run on the server. nanoc “compiles” the local source files into HTML (usually), by evaluating eRuby, Markdown, etc.
Note: This documentation looks best with Yardoc, not RDoc.
Ruby 1.9.x and up.
nanoc has few dependencies. It is possible to use nanoc programmatically without any dependencies at all, but if you want to use nanoc in a proper way, you’ll likely need some dependencies:
- The commandline frontend depends on
- Filters and helpers likely have dependencies on their own too.
If you’re developing for nanoc, such as writing custom filters or helpers, you may be interested in the development dependencies:
- For documentation generation you’ll need
- For testing you’ll need
gem install nanoc or take a look at the installation page.
rake will run all the tests. To run a subset, use specific tasks, e.g.
rake test:filters for running filter tests only.
nanoc uses Semantic Versioning.
