Razor based static site generator


-i input directory

-o output directory

-c site config

-a comma seperated list of assemblies you want to add to the build

Example usage

congelato -i _stevenpearsdev -o stevenpearsdev -c _tshapeddev.yml -a newfeature.dll

Site structure

Congelato tries to run similar to other site generators so that it's easy to transfer.

So from the input directory it expects a structure like this


all other files and directories are copied as-is

Site Config

The config file also tries to adhere to rules set by other generators. There is a data property for adhoc information too

  Mostly .NET and Alexa based.

Layouts can be nested - everything after the yaml block at the top is the .NET template, so using statements go after the yaml, not at the very top.

As a base layout or page - the next piece of content in the chain is always rendered by the statement @await Content()

An example layout:

layout: default
using AddedAssemblyNamespace;
<div class="container">
    <div class="row">
      <div class="col-lg-8 col-md-10 mx-auto">
        @await Content()



posts are a similar thing with most popular config options applied, they also have the data element for other information. If posts have a markdown extension they will be converted to HTML for you
