baker, the real static blog generator in bash

baker

  • Template
  • Markdown
  • Draft
  • Video/Audio (ffmpeg)
  • Tag
  • RSS

Start your first post

  1. Give it a title: ./baker post I love pizza so much! This command will create a markdown file that has the slug i-love-pizza-so-much in the post directory. If the $EDITOR environment variable is set, it will open up the post markdown file with the editor.

  2. Change draft from true to false to publish the post.

  3. Bake all posts: ./baker bake

Template redesigned

The new template engine is much faster (and smaller) than the previous version. It now uses bash's scope as its context.

variable

Variable identifier should only use [A-Za-z_]. Notice that any number is not allowed in a variable name.

{{ var }}

{{ content }} # embed child layout output

if

Notice that spaces are not allowed between ! and var.

@if !var
	...
@end

each

@each iterates an array. This is why a number is not allowed in a variable name.

For example,

posts = [
	{
		"title": "first",
		"content": "example1",
	},
	{
		"title": "second",
		"content": "example2",
	},
]

is encoded as:

posts_0_title=first
posts_0_content=example1

posts_1_title=second
posts_1_content=example2
@each posts
	{{ title }} - {{ content }}
@end

include

@include includes a partial from $LAYOUT_DIR/$filename.md. Notice that .md is already added.

@include filename

cmd

@cmd gets stdout from embedded bash script.

@cmd

for i in {1..10}; do
	echo "$i"
done

@end

Markdown

It currently uses the implementation from Daring Fireball.
