this is a work in progress!
A boring (and simple...) static site generator written in Perl with a little help from rsync.
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 evaluate perl=0 # use perl false boolen value [server] port=8090
Pages begin (as in Jekyll) with a YAML "front matter" block:
--- title: Nine Stories layout: default author: J.D. Salinger --- A Perfect Day for Bananafish wherein Seymour ends his own life.
Template file types can be any of:
.tmpl, .template, .html, .tt, .tt2.
One can define partials and such for use in templates or layouts or what have you:
[% footer = 'partials/footer.tt' %] [% INCLUDE $footer %]
A simple web server is included but one would be wise in using it only for local development purposes.
BSS_DOCROOT ENV var is set.
$ BSS_DOCROOT=/path/to/your/_site bss build --server # otherwise defaults to "_site"
$ nix build --extra-experimental-features nix-command --extra-experimental-features flakes # this will place bss in your nix profile so it's "installed" in a sense. This is the replacement for nix-env... $ nix profile --extra-experimental-features nix-command --extra-experimental-features flakes install
