Sculpin Blog Skeleton

A skeleton for a Sculpin based blog.

Powered by Sculpin. =)


A very basic Sculpin based blog supporting the following features:

  • Very minimal Bootstrap based theme.
  • A handful of existing posts in source/_posts/ to get you started. Feel free to remove these when you are ready.
  • An about page at /about.
  • An index page at /. It displays all posts and paginates them.
  • A blog archive page at /blog. It displays post titles broken down by month and is paginated.
  • A blog categories page at /blog/categories.
  • A blog category index at /blog/categories/$category. Similar to the blog archive except broken down by each category.
  • A blog tags page at /blog/tags.
  • A blog tag index at /blog/tags/$tag. Similar to the blog archive except broken down by each tag.


If You Already Have Sculpin

sculpin install
sculpin generate --watch --server

Your newly generated clone of sculpin-blog-skeleton is now accessible at http://localhost:8000/.

If You Need Sculpin

curl -O
php sculpin.phar install
php sculpin.phar generate --watch --server

Previewing Development Builds

By default the site will be generated in output_dev/. This is the location of your development build.

To preview it with Sculpin's built in webserver, run either of the following commands. This will start a simple webserver listening at localhost:8000.

Using Sculpin's Internal Webserver

Generate Command

To serve files right after generating them, use the generate command with the --server option:

sculpin generate --server

To listen on a different port, specify the --port option:

sculpin generate --server --port=9999

Combine with --watch to have Sculpin pick up changes as you make them:

sculpin generate --server --watch
Server Command

To serve files that have already been generated, use the serve command:

sculpin serve

To listen on a different port, specify the --port option:

sculpin serve --port=9999

Using a Standard Webserver

The only special consideration that needs to be taken into account for standard webservers in development is the fact that the URLs generated may not match the path at which the site is installed.

This can be solved by overriding the site.url configuration option when generating the site.

sculpin generate --url=

With this option passed, {{ site.url }}/about will now be generated as instead of /about.

Publishing Production Builds

When --env=prod is specified, the site will be generated in output_prod/. This is the location of your production build.

sculpin generate --env=prod

These files are suitable to be transferred directly to a production host. For example:

sculpin generate --env=prod
rsync -avze 'ssh -p 999' output_prod/

In fact, is provided to get you started. If you plan on deploying to an Amazon S3 bucket, you can use alongside the s3cmd utility (must be installed separately).
