Stakx is a static website generator built in PHP inspired by Jekyll and Sculpin. Unlike its alternatives, Stakx is distributed as a single executable so you don't need to worry about silly

Locally Serving a Site
Stakx includes a built-in web server, which you can run with the following commands. Access your site at
php ../bin/stakx serve

serve command will only build the requested page, and not the entire site. The
serve command is ideal for quick development and testing.
To build your site for production, use the
