Markdown Static Site

Markdown Static Site is a small vanilla PHP script that lets you easily turn a bunch of markdown files into a static site.


The markdown files go in the files folder.
Edit the value of the markdownFilesPath key in config.json to use another folder name.

Edit the value of the defaultPath key in config.json to the path of the default file to be shown when no path is specified via the URL.

If you don't want to use URL rewriting, set the value of the useModRewrite to false key in config.json (and delete/edit the .htaccess).


The url root-domain-or-folder/welcome will display the markdown file at root-domain-or-folder/files/
The url root-domain-or-folder/folder/welcome will display the markdown file at root-domain-or-folder/files/folder/

You may access any files in the files folder without extension, provided the extension is set in the array as value of the rewriteExtension key in config.json (default is md, html and php).

Without url rewriting, just add index.php? in front of the file's path : root-domain-or-folder/index.php?welcome.


Markdown to HTML conversion is powered by Michel Fortin's PHP Markdown v1.4.0.
