Introducing Statim

01/24/2011

I just push Statim, a very simple static site generator that I’ve worked on the past couple days. It is written in shell as an attempt to limit run-time dependencies so that it can be used on pretty much any Unix server. I more or less wanted a simple site generator that I could trigger on a git hook to build a website where I was less concerned about looks, and just wanted a quick way to push up information.

Currently running statim does the following:

  1. Copies all files from the content directory to the destination directory of your choice
  2. Runs any files ending in “.md” or “.markdown” through the “markdown” command and relocates the resulting html
  3. For each subdirectory it creates links based on file names and camel-casing conventions (like a wiki)
    • There’s nothing super complicated or revolutionary here, its just a simple tool for me because none of the others did what I wanted.
