Semi Static¶ ↑
Semi Static is yet another static site generator. I’ve been playing around with similar systems off and on for years, but it’s Jekyll that finally convinced me to build (and finish) one for myself. The main idea that I take from Jekyll is using Git as the database. The idea from Jekyll that I’m not adopting is avoiding Ruby code evaluation at all costs – I’m not letting other people feed documents into it (as GitHub Pages does), so I don’t need to protect myself from them.
At some point Semi Static had a sister project, Semi Live, that would generate the site dynamically (probably via Rails). I stopped working on it not long after I first started, so don’t expect to see it on my projects page.
Stylesheets can be Sass or raw CSS.
Pages and posts can be Maruku or raw HTML.
Code highlighting by Pygments.
The easiest way to install Semi-Static is via RubyGems:
$ sudo gem install zzot-semi-static -s http://gems.github.com/
Semi-Static requires the ‘Haml` and `Maruku` gems and the `Pygments` library to be installed.
$ semi source-path [output-path]
