Carew The tiny website generator

What is it?#

Carew is another static site / blog generator. Write some blog posts or pages in markdown, Carew will render them in html.



The best way to start with carew is to use the carew boilerplate: You will need composer.

$ php composer.phar create-project carew/boilerplate my_website
$ cd my_website
$ bin/carew build

That's all, you can browse the web/ directory. If you are using php 5.4+, you can start the build-in webserver:

$ php bin/carew serve


Do you want to see it in action? This doc uses Carew ;) Have a look to the codebase.

By the way, if you use Carew, let me know.

Why another one?#

I used to use jekyll, but I was very unhappy with the templating engine. And then, I discovered balrog. It was very cool but igor took another direction. So I forked it, and carew was born.

Why this name?#

Just like every other static site / blog generator (jekyll, hyde, poole, lanyon), its name comes from the Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde story.
