What is Staticpress?
Staticpress is a blog-focused static site generator. It uses Tilt for rendering nearly any template you can think of and come with a built-in Rack server for easy development previews.
Staticpress is installable as a Rubygem so a simple
[sudo] gem install staticpress is all you need. Once installed you will need to initialize your blog with
staticpress new <path-to-blog> [name-of-blog], where
<path-to-blog> is a relative path to some directory and
[name-of-blog] is an optional title. If the directory does not exist yet, it will be created, so go ahead and
cd into it.
From your blog directory, you can create a new blog post with
staticpress create <title>. You can turn on the server with
staticpress serve to preview work in progress. Several other commands are available; check out
staticpress help for more information.
