$ gem install machined
$ machined new blog
This creates a directory with the default Machined project structure. More on that later. Let's start up the Machined server:
$ cd blog $ bundle install $ bundle exec machined server
Now that the server is running, edit your pages, assets, etc. and view the results. Most static site servers need to recompile the entire site each time a request is made. Machined (well really Sprockets) is smart enough to compile only what you request, so developing is super fast.
Deploying a Static Website
Once you've created your site, it's time to go live. On your production box, you just need to compile the site and let Apache, Nginx, or whatever handle the serving. It'll be fast - damn fast.
$ bundle exec machined compile --environment production
