A simple, pluggable site generation tool for .NET developers and Windows users (with Mono support planned I think)
We are working on a number of features for the initial release of Pretzel, which are represented by the commands create, bake and taste.
Create is used to create the folder structure for a new site.
If the site should be at a specific folder, this can be specified as a parameter:
pretzel create C:\path\to\folder
Bake is used to generate a site based on the contents of a folder.
To scan the current directory for a website and detect the content to process, run:
To scan a specific folder and parse the contents, run:
pretzel bake C:\path\to\folder
To explicitly specify the input - we should support inferring the input based on the files found anyway - run:
pretzel bake --engine jekyll
Taste is for testing a site locally - make a change, and pretzel should handle regenerating the page when a file changes.
To test a site locally (we plan to use Firefly), run:
To specify the port to serve the site from (default will be 4000), run:
pretzel taste --port 5000
Getting started with Git and GitHub
- Setting up Git for Windows and connecting to GitHub
- Forking a GitHub repository
- The simple gude to GIT guide
Once you're familiar with Git and GitHub, clone the repository and run the
.\build.cmd script to compile the code and run all the unit tests. You can use this script to test your changes quickly.
