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.
- Simple but extensible
- Auto syntax highlighting
- Auto generated navigation
- Auto generated pagination
- One theme base on Bootstrap
- Shareable/Linkable SEO Friendly URLs
- No need for php, ruby, python on the production server.
- Git friendly
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.
