I am already wondering what is next for this thing, although there is a lot of obvious stuff. So i had a look for other static site generators and found a nice list.
Jekyll seems like the top dog but it is written
in ruby and I have no use for ruby at the moment so forget that. Looking over
the docs i'm not sure I like the assumptions it makes anyway, especially
regarding the file naming for content. I am currently just using the
file modification time to insert a
date variable but that isn't
going to work for edits and what not.
What I need next I suppose is a way to have some meta data per file. How
to do that sensibly? Markdown doesn't have a real way
to put comments in the file so I guess it comes down to either pre-processing
or adding another file, say with the
FILENAME.json or something like that.
I implemented input directory recursion and the
FILENAME.json for page level
meta data. Time for a burger.
