Highly customizable static blog/wiki generator.
- Generate posts via external commands, so you can customize it easily.
- Built-in post/list generator using tilt. Support any tilt format.
- Specify configuration in config/logi.rb.
- Basic wiki syntax:
- Write your own layouts.
- Ruby 1.9+ (Also tested with JRuby and Rubinius)
- Tilt for built-in post/list generator:
gem install tilt
- Kramdown for markdown generator:
gem install kramdown
If you have Ruby installed, you could simply run:
gem install logi gem install tilt # If you want to use built-in generators gem install kramdown # If you want to use Markdown with tilt
If you need to install Ruby, first you should try the one provided by your package manager.
For Arch Linux, run:
sudo pacman -Syu # Update packages list first sudo pacman -S ruby
For Mac OS X, if you have Homebrew installed, run:
brew update # Update packages list first brew install ruby --with-doc
For Windows, you might want to try RubyInstaller.
If your package manager does not yet provide Ruby 2.0, you could try ruby-install which could compile and handle Ruby's own dependencies for you.
Or just grab the source tarball and install it manually.
You can check the example blog. Or read help:
$ logi -h Usage: logi [OPTIONS] [PATH to logi root] logi options: -c, --color Color mode (default) -n, --no-color No color mode -V, --verbose Verbose mode (default) -q, --quiet Quiet mode -h, --help Print this message -v, --version Print the version defaults: root directory . post directory post layout directory layout output directory public post command post layout file /path/to/logi/lib/logi/layout/default.html.erb
Write your own generators
Suppose you want to use pandoc to generate your post, you could build
a command line tool called
logi-pandoc which the first argument would
be the path to the original post file, and the second argument to the
path of the layout file. Also, read from
stdin for post content
preprocessed for the wiki syntax.
So you could think of it like this:
logi-wiki post.md | logi-pandoc post.md layout.html.erb > post.html
For a more complex generator, you could see logi-list which would generate a post listing all the posts.
