  • shite

    The little hot-reloadin' static site maker from shell.

    Project mention: “Make” as a Static Site Generator | | 2023-09-10

    I love the code [1]. Mine [2] is a bit over engineered because I wanted hot-reloading (without JS), and it was a delightful yak shave.

    But the basic idea is the same --- heredocs for templating, using a plaintext -> html compiler (pandoc in my case), an intermediate CSV for index generation.

    Very nice!
