A simple static site generator powered by PHP, YAML, Markdown and mustache. Licensed under MIT License

There are many other and better staticsitegenerators, but I searched for these features and did not find:

  • edit without texteditor or ssh access. Using webedit on your browser and get a textarea or markdown-WYSIWM to change and create pages.
  • meta information for rendering (template, menue etc) or html metatags are at the bottom of the page and only optional (tried to use my own standard PROSErial).
  • no indexed or automatic menu; just an extra included page with a (nested) list.

Some more small features like titletags from the first heading, etc.

All about editing, admin, setup and templates in the wiki.

Demo (use user a and password a. There is no further protection, so all changes will be deleted sporadic for cleanup.)

  • to my knowledge Hacker CMS is the only other staticsitegenerator with a webinterface. The filetree, is a feature, drfrederson is missing at all. But it uses the common ssg jekyll, so users have to deal with frontmatter and not PROSErial.
