HastySite is a simple command-line program that supports some default commands and options, described in the following sections.
hastysite command [ options ]
The following sections define the default commands provided by HastySite. All of them except for init can be modified, and you can also configure your own commands by creating your own min scripts and placing them in the scripts directory.
Builds the site by preprocessing contents and assets, processing rules defined in the rules.min file, and creating a temporary file containing the checksums of all newly-generated files. By doing so, the next time this command is executed, only the files that have actually been modified will be copied to the output directory.
The rules.min file processed by this command:
- Ignores contents and assets starting with . or _.
- Pre-processes CSS variables in all .css files.
- Processes text as HastyScribe-compatible Markdown in all .md content files.
- Associates contents to mustache templates based on the value of the content-type metadata property.
- Copies each asset file “as-is” to the output directory, respecting the source directory structure in the asset directory.
- Copies each content file to a directory within the output named after the source content ID, in an index.html file (to easily obtain “pretty URLs” ending with no extension).
This command can be customized by modifying the scripts/build.min file within your site directory.
Deletes all files and directories in the output and temp directories.
This command can be customized by modifying the scripts/clean.min file within your site directory.
