Make everything documents #190

This is planned for DocPad v5.2, which would entail giving everything a document class.

This will enable us to accomplish:

  • differential rendering (only re-render the files that have changed)
  • easier adoption of DocPad when migrating from existing websites
  • query-engine for other files (already possible in v5.1 - providing everything is inside the documents directory)

What may be needed:

  • get rid of the partial and layout classes, and opt for a type attribute inside documents. E.g. type: "layout" would go inside a layout's meta data.
    • this will enable advanced stuff like having multiple types of documents, querying by type, and default attributes for types

Released alongside DocPad v5.2
