STAtic SIte Generator


Stasi is a static site generator.

  • posts are written in any format
  • templates are written in any format
  • all posts/templates has a yaml-front-matter
  • configuration is done in the package.json file
  • plugins decide how to render posts and templates
  • plugins decide how to preview pages
  • plugins decide how to deploy the website

Start a new project

You need the grunt-init template

cd ~/.grunt-init
git clone stasi

Then you can create a new website with:

grunt-init stasi

This creates:

  • a package.json with dependencies for your stasi site
  • a stasi.json with your site settings
  • a source directory with dummy data. (a template, a page and a post)
  • a public folder (with a dummy index.html page)
  • a Gruntfile.js to allow using grunt for all tasks
grunt stasi:post "Title of the post"
grunt stasi:page "Title of the page"

To create either a page or a post

grunt stasi:server

to show the pages

grunt stasi:deploy


Post / Page

  • Markdown
  • Html


  • Handlebars


  • Express


  • Rsync
