msg

(note: this page is copied from the README file. it may not always be up to date.)

msg is a tiny static site generator. this site was built with it!

it probably isn’t useful for anyone but me, but i’m still making it open source (and easily usable for other sites) just in case somebody else wants to use it.

usage

create a _config.yaml file in a directory (any directory!)
then, create a data directory and add .md files in there.
when you’re done, run this program to output a tiny website in build/ :]

all .md files are converted to HTML. any other files not starting with _ or . are copied directly into the build directory.

example config

name: this is a website
navigation:
  - name: home
    url: index.html
  - name: about
    url: about.html
