bread

bread

a file based static website/blog generator for node that uses bake, mongodb and markdown.

I’m using it for my personal website, vorba.ch. It supports normal pages (in any directory structure you like), customizable index pages and feeds as well as tag pages. Commenting functionality can be added by using a service like Disqus or my own comments, which also supports pingbacks.

So let’s see how you can bake your bread in node.

Example

var bread = require("bread");

// configuration object
var conf = {
  dbinf: { // MongoDB connection
    host: "localhost",
    port: "27017",
    name: "mywebsite",
    collection: "pages"
  },

  directories: {
    input: "pub",    // Look for files in this dir.
    output: "pub",   // Write files to this dir.
    templates: "tpl" // Look for templates in this dir.
  },

  fileExtensions: { // Replace markdown by html
    "mkd": "html",
    "md": "html",
    "mdown": "html",
    "markdown": "html"
  },

  // Array of indexes that shall be created
  indexes: [
    // Blog Index
    {
      title: "My Blog",
      pattern: /\/log\/[^\/]+/, // Index files matched by this pattern.
      path: {
        first: "/log/index.html",  // first page of the index
        pattern: "/log/index-{{page}}.html"  // other pages
      },
      template: "index.tpl",    // template
      limit: 8,                 // 8 links per page
      sort: [["date", "desc"]]  // newest first
    },
    // RSS Feed
    {
      title: "My Blog",
      pattern: /\/log\/[^\/]+/, // Add files matched by this pattern to the
                                // feed.
      path: "/log/feed.xml",    // feed url
      template: "rss.tpl",      // template
      limit: 10,                // total maximum
      sort: [["date", "desc"]]  // newest first
    }
  ],

  properties: {
    siteTitle: "My Site"
  }
};

bread(conf);

That's it for the moment. Extended documentation will soon follow in the wiki.

Example: vorba.ch

You can check out the repo for my personal website to get a picture of how bread works. Before you can start, install MongoDB and ensure it is running under localhost:27017.

$ cd your-working-directory
$ git clone git://github.com/pvorb/vorba.ch.git
$ cd vorba.ch
$ npm install -g bread
$ mongo
MongoDB shell version: x.y.z
connecting to: test
> use vorb_de
switched to db vorb_de
> db.createCollection('docs')
{ "ok": 1 }
> exit
bye
$ bread
# let the magic happen
$ npm install -g wup
$ cd public
$ wup

Then, all you have to do is visit localhost:8080.
