#bss - boring static site generator

A dead simple static site generator written in Perl with a little help from rsync.

#Getting Started

bss reads manifest.ini for its configuration options:

```
[build]
src=/the/path/to/your/site/src/
dest=/home/you/websites/_site/
templates=src/templates
collections=posts
exclude=*.md,*.markdown,templates,junk
encoding=UTF-8
[server]
port=8090

```

Pages begin (as in Jekyll) with a YAML "front matter" block:  

```
---
title: Nine Stories
layout: default 
    author: J.D. Salinger 
---
[% footer = 'partials/footer.tt' %]

	foot clan
[% INCLUDE $footer %]
```

Template files can use any of the following file exts: `.tmpl, .template, .html, .tt, .tt2`.

A simple web server is included but one would be wise in using it only for local development purposes. Ensure the BSS_DOCROOT ENV var is set.

An example:

$ BSS_DOCROOT=/path/to/your/_site bss build --server --watch

#FIXME (helpme) (todo)

  • [] Handle removing YAML block correctly
  • [] So that we can actually write OG daringfireball md

#Installing

I've been using fatpack. This won't work with XS modules. So, this also needs to be fixed.
