Static Site Generator
This project aims to provide a way for c# developers to benefit from very cheap/free hosting through static files, while allowing them to use familiar ASP.NET MVC concepts (Views, Partials, Layouts, etc). This also allows you to have an initial static site that you can then update to a dynamic website backed by ASP.NET Core without starting from scratch.
Since this project converts Views into HTML files, it is not possible (at least yet) to use Models.
This project is divided in two packages:
|TerevintoSoftware.StaticSiteGenerator||Contains the main logic of the project, depends on ASP.NET Core.|
|TerevintoSoftware.StaticSiteGenerator.Tool||Contains a .NET Tool that can be invoked to perform the generation.|
- Install the tool:
dotnet tool install TerevintoSoftware.StaticSiteGenerator.Tool
- (optional) Create a new project:
dotnet new mvc -o MyProject
- (optional) See the available options with
- Run the static site generation:
ssg --project [project-path] --output [output-path]
The main website for testing out the basic set of features in this tool is here.
