lume is the galician word for fire, but also a (yet another) static site generator for Deno.

It's inspired in other general purpose static site generators such Jekyll or Eleventy but it's faster, simpler and easier to use and configure, besides being super flexible.

  • Support for multiple file formats like markdown, yaml, javascript, typescript, jsx, nunjucks and it's easy to extend.
  • You can hook any processor to transform assets, like sass or postcss for CSS.
  • It's Deno: forget about manage thousand of packages in node_modules or complex bundlers. Lume only install that you need. Clean, fast and secure.

Quick start

Make sure you have Deno installed.

Create your first page, for example using a nunjucks template:

title: Welcome to my page
    <title>{{ title }}</title>

    <h1>{{ title }}</h1>

Run it:

deno run --unstable -A

This command will compile your documents to HTML and save them into the folder _site.
