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
bundle install or
composer install commands to build your website.
stakx's philosophy is to be treated as a model-view-controller (MVC) setup where stakx itself is the controller, Twig makes up the views, and your content makes up the models. Following this philosophy will allow you to have truly reusable content making migration to and from stakx a breeze.
