Add another 'Static Site Generators' Package


Note This project is essentially archived. Wyam has been rebranded and rebooted as Statiq. New development is happening over at Statiq.Framework and Statiq.Web. If you have a cool feature request, please open them over there so I can make sure it's considered for Statiq. The issue tracker and code here will remain open in order to deal with any ongoing issues specific to Wyam.

Wyam is a simple to use, highly modular, and extremely configurable static content generator that can be used to generate web sites, produce documentation, create ebooks, and much more. Since everything is configured by chaining together flexible modules (that you can even write yourself), the only limits to what it can create are your imagination.

The easiest way to get started is to install as a .NET Core global tool and use a recipe and theme.

  1. Download and install Wyam as a global tool:

    dotnet tool install -g Wyam.Tool

  2. Scaffold a new blog:

    wyam new --recipe Blog

  3. Edit the scaffolded files.

  4. Build the blog with a theme:

    wyam --recipe Blog --theme CleanBlog

To go deeper, read more about the underlying concepts and then read about configuration files and the available command line arguments. Then check out the full list of modules.

For more information see Wyam.io.
