Librarian is a static site builder and Markdown document indexer inspired by Hugo but written in PHP. It uses the same format as DEV.to for markdown files with a front matter and liquid tags for custom functionality. The front matter is fluid and doesn't have a fixed spec, meaning you can include any custom fields you want and fetch them from your templates.

Librarian doesn't use databases, sessions, or users. Administration is made from the command-line. For multiple authors, author information must be defined as metadata within the front matter.
