Yet Another Static Blog Generator I guess

Jules is a static blog generator named after a victorian-ish era literary or intellectual character, because apparently that’s a trend now.

Jules processes a list of input directories called packs. A few packs are included to provide useful parts of a website. As of this time, Jules ship with HTML5 Boilerplate, LESS CSS, Bootstrap, and Atom XML Feeds.

Files from the source packs are grouped by their base name, the filename without extensions. A bundle could include a YAML configuration file, a Jinja2 template, or other files. The bundles of files are processed together to output files. By default, the files in the bundle are simply copied.

Restructured text files in a bundle are parsed as the bundle content, YAML files are parsed as the bundle meta data, and Jinja2 templates are used to render output HTML.
