Dash: a development-side plugin framework
What is Dash?
Dash is plugin-based framework meant to run development-side in order to help generate high-quality static sites. The plugin architecture allows drop-in functionality, with a web-based administration panel to enable plugins and modify their settings (or edit the settings yourself--it's a JSON file).
Dash is not meant to run on a production server. Plugins, such as Flattener, produce files suitable for production use.
Dash is meant to work with Apache and mod_rewrite.
Dash provides a clean and simple way to add and create plugins that help developers put together quality static websites. For instance, a Markdown plugin exists that can easily parse a markdown file such as this one into HTML.
