Wyam - static content generator toolkit (CLI)

#1 Post by tproli » Sun Aug 05, 2018 11:50 pm

A static content toolkit and can be used to generate web sites, produce documentation, create ebooks, and much more. Since everything is configured by chaining together flexible modules (that you can even write yourself), the only limits to what it can create are your imagination.

- Written in .NET and easily extensible
- Low ceremony - download a zip file, unzip, and run
- Flexible script-based configuration using the power of the .NET Compiler Platform (Roslyn)
- Lots of modules for things like reading and writing files, handling front matter, manipulating metadata, and much, much more
- YAML and JSON parsers
- Less CSS compiler
- Image manipulation
- Support for multiple templating languages including Markdown and Razor
- Integrated web server for previewing output with LiveReload support
- Integrated file watching and regeneration
- Full NuGet support
- Embeddable engine
- Cool name


I thought it would be good to mention here at TPFC too even if it's a command line application since it's one of the best of its kind.

Wyam is a Native American name for the Celilo Falls area and is also roughly translated as "echo of falling water" or "sound of water upon the rocks".

Cool name, indeed! 8)

Let's see how I fare with it -- this sure looks interesting:
