Static is a simple static site generator written in Clojure. For a sample site build using static see nakkaya.com

Features

Static can parse org-mode and markdown files.

Dependencies

Static requires the leiningen build tool. Once installed, you can build Static with the following commands from within the project directory structure:

$ lein deps
$ lein uberjar

Usage

Creating a static site usually involves the following,

  • Set up the basic structure of the site
  • Create some posts
  • Run your site locally to see how it looks
  • Deploy your site

A basic static site usually looks something like this:

.
|-- config.clj
`-- resources
   |-- posts
   |   |-- 2009-04-17-back-up-and-restore-a-mysql-database.markdown
   |   |-- 2010-02-10-a-simple-clojure-irc-client.markdown
   |   `-- 2010-08-02-using-clojure-contrib-generic-interfaces.markdown
   |-- public
   |   `-- 404.html
   |-- site
   |   `-- index.markdown
   `-- templates
       `-- default.clj

An overview of what each of these does:

config.clj

Contains a vector of configuration options.

  • :site-title - Title of the site.
  • :site-description - Description of the site.
  • :site-url - URL of the site.
  • :author-name - Name of the author.
  • :author-email - E-mail address of the author.
  • :copyright-year - Year the pages were created/copyrighted.
  • :in-dir - Directory containing site content by default resources/
  • :out-dir - Directory to save compiled files.
  • :atomic-build - When set, will build the site on a temporary directory first then move that directory to :out-dir.
  • :default-template - Default template to use.
  • :encoding - Encoding to use for read write operations.
  • :posts-per-page - Number of posts in latest post pages.
  • :blog-as-index - If true use blog as index.
  • :emacs - path to emacs if you want to render .org files.
  • :emacs-eval - elisp code to be evaluated on the emacs process.
  • :host - remote host to deploy to.
  • :user - remote username
  • :deploy-dir - Remote directory to deploy to.
  • :rsync - path to rsync if you want to deploy with rsync.

The variables can later be reused (for example in your default template) as:

(:author-name (static.config/config))

posts/

Folder containing posts, the format of these files are important, as named as YEAR-MONTH-DATE-title.MARKDOWN.

public/

Folder containing static data such as images, css, javascript etc. Folder structure will be mirrored exactly.

site/

Folder containing pages that are not posts.

templates/

Folder containing templates that are used to render posts and pages with.

Markup

Supported markup languages,

  • markdown
  • org-mode (via emacs)
  • clojure (hiccup)
  • cssgen
  • html

Setting per page/post settings

Setting the template, title etc, for a page/post is done using a header placed at the top of the file,

org-mode

#+title: Blogging Like a Hacker
#+tags: clojure

Markdown

---
template: temp-en.clj
title: Blogging Like a Hacker
---

Clojure

{:title "Blogging Like a Hacker"}

cssgen

cssgen does not support file-specific settings.

Page/Post Settings

  • template - If set, this specifies the template file to use. Use the layout file name with file extension. Layout files must be placed in the templates directory.
  • title - Override the use of default title.
  • alias - Generates redirect pages for posts with aliases set. ([“/first-alias/index.html”, “/second-alias/index.html”]) Place the full path of the alias (place to redirect from) inside the destination post.

Any other setting you provide can be accessed from within your template.

Installation

You need to place the uberjar lein created to the folder containing config.clj.

Building the site

java -jar static-app.jar --build

Testing the site

You can test the site locally using jetty, which will launch on http://localhost:8080. The site will rebuild if you change any of the source files.

java -jar static-app.jar --watch

In order to run just jetty,

java -jar static-app.jar --jetty

Deploying the site

RSYNC

$ java -jar static-app.jar --rsync
