Static site gen, my way.
Turns markdown + front matter + config + sass into a static site.
That static site can be published....
...and it's like all the other static gen frameworks, except apparently I hate them all and want to reinvent everything always because I'm probably stupid.
I'm using prepply to build https://noisybox.net/
Maybe you could find it useful too.
- a "live dev" server
- flat pages
- a paged blog
- blog rss/atom feeds
- blog tags
- blog tags atom/rss feeds
- support for audio playlists
- support for fancybox galleries
- assumes external assets, but supports in-site assets just in case
Seems to be reasonably fast (generates 1700+ files on my site in under 2.5s).
Builds the static site:
$ node prepply/prepply.js --indir ../site --outdir ../out \ --clean --config ../site/config.yml
This will process the content in the
site dir, turning markdown into
html and copying over assets, resulting in a new
out dir. Any exising
will be removed (the
--clean option does this).
If your configuration file is correct, then you can use this npm shortcut:
$ npm run build
dev server usage
Runs a live-reload development server:
$ node dev-server.js --indir ../site --outdir ../out \ --config ../site/config.yml --static ../site-assets
of if your configuration is correct, just do
$ npm run dev-server
need to document this
- changing content of a single blog screws paging, just redo them all(?)
- dev server should generate blogs and everything on the first go...just no on successive.
- sometimes file change can crash devserver? maybe it's read before write finishes?
- um, maybe I should write some tests at some point. :)
- make themeing / skinning a little more straightforward
- create tag pages for regular pages too
- leverage sidebar etc
- consider webpacking various js together for publish
- support for rdf, like in album pages (do people still care about rdf?)
