Install Situs via npm.

Then fire the development server! Situs will watch your directory. So if you make change one of your files, Situs will rebuild your static site automatically.

~/your-directory $ situs server

Usage

$ situs build
# Build your source directory and place it to destination. (default: ./situs)

$ situs server
# Start development server, watch for changes and rebuild source automatically.

$ situs help
# Print Situs command usage.

$ situs -v
$ situs --version
# Print Situs version.

  "ignore": [
    "node_modules/**/*"
  ],
  "markdown": false,
  "permalink": false,
  "port": 4000,
  "global": {}
}
Parameter Value Description
source string Source directory of static site
destination string Destination directory of static site for compiled source files

markdown boolean Render markdown to html. If it set false, markdown file will not converted to be html when you build source.

Built-in Function

Handlebars template

Situs is using Handlebars to render data and also include some additional helpers function like,

{{#escape}} : Used for escaping html string, especially in html file. Example:

{{#escape}}
<html>
</html>
{{#escape}}

# Will be rendered to
&lt;html&gt;
&lt;/html&gt;

{{#code}} : Used for escaping code and also wrapping it inside <pre> and <code>. Example:

{{#code}}
<html>
</html>
{{#code}}

# Will be rendered to
<pre><code>&lt;html&gt;
&lt;/html&gt;
</code></pre>

# You can also add class in your <code> tag (usually for syntax highlighter)
{{#code class="lang-html"}}
<html>
</html>
{{#code}}

# Will be rendered to
<pre><code class="lang-html">&lt;html&gt;
&lt;/html&gt;
</code></pre>

For other Handlebars helper, please visit http://handlebarsjs.com/.

@situs-include(filePath)

You can include other file inside a file, by passing relative path of the file to @situs-include(). This function is usefull when you needed to put same content in several source files. Situs will raise an error, if included file is not found.

Example:

index.html

<html>
  @situs-include(./header.html)
  <body>
  </body>
</html>

header.html

<head>
  <title>Sample situs page</title>
</head>

Output:

<html>
  <head>
    <title>Sample situs page</title>
  </head>
  <body>
  </body>
</html>

@situs-data(jsonString)

@situs-data() allows you to add local data directly on your file, same as Front Matter does in Jekyll. To use it, you have to insert JSON string as parameter.

Example:

index.html

@situs-data({
  "title": "Sample situs page"
})
<html>
  <head>
    <title>{{ title }}</title>
  </head>
  <body>
  </body>
</html>

Output:

<html>
  <head>
    <title>Sample situs page</title>
  </head>
  <body>
  </body>
</html>

If you included a file, @situs-data() also render the local data to include file.

Example:

index.html

@situs-data({
  "title": "Sample situs page"
})
<html>
  @situs-include(./header.html)
  <body>
  </body>
</html>

header.html

<head>
  <title>{{ title }}</title>
</head>

Output:

<html>
  <head>
    <title>Sample situs page</title>
  </head>
  <body>
  </body>
</html>

@situs-ignore()

Situs also provide @situs-ignore() if you want to ignore a file manually, without specifying the file in situs.json. Just place @situs-ignore() anywhere inside your file.

Example:

Directory structure (before build)

- \main-directory
    - \destination
      - (empty)
    - \source
      - index.html
      - page.html

page.html

@situs-ignore()

<html>
  <head>
    <title>Sample page</title>
  </head>
  <body>
  </body>
</html>

Build your source

~\main-directory $ situs build

Directory structure (after build)

- \main-directory
    - \destination
      - index.html
    - \source
      - index.html
      - page.html
