Mynah helps you keep a digital garden, or wiki from a directory of markdown files.

Currently it is pretty bare-bones, a major missing feature is that it can't handle images. That may come in the future.

To use mynah:

  • clone this repository
  • plop the mynah script wherever you'll be managing your wiki
  • ensure that mynah is executable, chmod +x mynah
  • run mynah -nest to prepare the way, this will bootstrap some necessary directories and documents
  • from there, add any and all markdown content to the content directory
  • when you've updated your content and are ready to build the html of the wiki, run mynah -build

mynah -build converts the markdown to html with pandoc, exporting the output to the public directory...easy peasy.

Mynah has a hard dependency on pandoc and the_silver_searcher. Both could be pretty easily replaced, though.
