= ecstatic * http://github.com/jgm/ecstatic == 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 == LICENSE: (The MIT License) Copyright (c) 2009 John MacFarlane Permission is hereby granted, free of charge, to any person obtaining a copy of this software and associated documentation files (the 'Software'), to deal in the Software without restriction, including without limitation the rights to use, copy, modify, merge, publish, distribute, sublicense, and/or sell copies of the Software, and to permit persons to whom the Software is furnished to do so, subject to the following conditions: The above copyright notice and this permission notice shall be included in all copies or substantial portions of the Software.
