Gumdrop; The sweet cms/prototyping tool.
It generates static html and includes a dev server that can be run via any rack server (including POW!).
$ gem install gumdrop
$ gumdrop new SITE_NAME
(You can run
gumdrop help to see a list of commands and their supported flags.)
Gumdrop will spit out a default Gumdrop project site for you, which you can then build by running:
$ cd SITE_NAME $ gumdrop build
Bam! A static version of the site is now available in a newly created
Don't want the output there? Maybe you want it to put it in
No problem. Open up the
Gumdrop project file:
$ $EDITOR Gumdrop
At the top of the file you'll find a
Gumdrop.configure block. Add this to the
top of that block:
Gumdrop.configure do |config| config.output_dir= "./public" # ... Other stuff end
Now, when you run
gumdrop build again, it'll generate all the output into
./public folder (creating it, if it doesn't exist).
That's enough to get you started! Poke around the code it generated to see how it works. You can also start with a blank slate by running:
$ gumdrop new -t blank MY_BLANK_SITE
Gumdrop can do quite a lot and is very configurable. Be sure and read the wiki for documentation and more examples!
