A basic static blogging engine, written in Haskell. It's meant to be bare-bones but supports:
- html templating
- multiple authors
It's built on top of the awesome Pandoc document converter. You just write your blog entries in RST, add a little metadata to the top, and let Agiluf do the rest. Templating uses Hastache, a Haskell implementation of Mustache templates.
A typical project structure:
A skeleton project with a simple theme based on Twitter's Bootstrap framework is located in the
example_blog folder in this project. You can use this as a base for building your own blog. The compiled binary can be used thusly:
?> agiluf /path/to/my_blog
The blog will be output into the
publish folder (as shown above). No fancy publishing workflows needed; from there it's a simple step to rsync the new blog contents up to your server:
?> rsync -avh /path/to/my_blog/publish/ email@example.com:/var/www
Why the name? There were a couple of historical figures who bore this sobriquet. However, I took the name from Italo Calvino's wonderful novel The Nonexistent Knight. It's something of a nod to the challenges of learning Haskell.
