The tiny static site generator written in lisphp.
To start a new site, just add the dependency via composer:
$ composer init --require igorw/balrog:dev-master -n
Now you can add the following directories:
layouts: The layouts are used to render the pages. They have a
.html.twigsuffix. You can create base templates and have more specific ones that extend them using the
Layouts get access to following variables:
post: Contains the data of the current post (it is not set on the index page). A post has
bodyand any additional front-matter meta data.
bodycontains the markdown body rendered as html.
posts: A listing of all posts in reverse order of publication.
Filenames that follow the
index.$format.twignaming scheme will get compiled to an
posts: Markdown files representing blog posts. Must be in the format of
2012-09-20-like-a-hacker.md. Each one must begin with a YAML front matter. Here is a sample blog post:
--- layout: post title: Blogging Like a Hacker --- # Blogging Like a Hacker * I’m bloggin yo! * ORLY? * YARLY!
The following fields are defined:
- title: Title of the blog post for display on the index.
layout: Layout to be used for rendering this post. Defaults to
default, which means
layouts/default.html.twigis rendered unless specified otherwise.
- hidden: Set this to true to hide a post from the index.
Other fields can be defined at will and used in the template.
In order to build the site, you can use the
balrog build command:
$ vendor/bin/balrog build
This will populate the
static directory with a set of files that can be
deployed onto any static web server.
