PieCrust 2.0.0-alpha1

A powerful static website generator and lightweight CMS.

Latest Version: 3.1.1

PieCrust is a static website generator and lightweight CMS that’s all managed with text files. No complex setup, databases, or administrative panels. Simple, beautiful, and yummy.

For more information, along with the complete documentation, visit the official website.


If you want to quickly give it a spin:

bin/chef init mywebsite
cd mywebsite
../bin/chef serve

It should create a new empty site in a mywebsite folder, and then start your default browser to show it to you. Use chef prepare page and chef prepare post to create pages and posts, and edit those in your favorite text editor.

When you’re happy, run ../bin/chef bake to generate the final static website, which you’ll find in _counter.
