== DESCRIPTION:

ecstatic helps you manage a static website.  Pages are generated
from tenjin templates and YAML data files.

== FEATURES:

* Generates a static site, for high performance and security
* Separation of data and presentation, as in a dynamic web framework,
  but with data in text files rather than databases
* Supports markdown
* Supports output in HTML, plain text, and LaTeX

== SYNOPSIS:

First, generate a site skeleton:

    ecstatic mysite

See what has been done:

    cd mysite
    ls

To build the site (in the <tt>site</tt> directory):

    rake

Try modifying the layout (<tt>standard.rbhtml</tt>),
the data (<tt>events.yaml</tt>), or the template
(<tt>events.rbhtml</tt>).  Recompile the site with rake.

If you want to add new pages, just add templates and
datafiles, and register the pages in <tt>siteindex.yaml</tt>.
Put any static files in <tt>files</tt>; these will be copied
verbatim into the site.

If a page has no dynamic elements (other than the ones handled
by the layout), you can use a markdown file instead of a
template.  Just give it the extension <tt>.markdown</tt>

== REQUIREMENTS:

* rpeg-markdown
* tenjin
* activesupport

== INSTALL:

* sudo gem install ecstatic
