An introduction to nanoc

nanoc is a small program which helps you to build your website quickly. First you should install it!

By executing “nanoc create-site directory_name”, you create a web site.

But this website needs to be compiled! By issing “nanoc” in the directory of the website you created, you compile it and output the pages into the “output” directory.

To create a new page, just create a new file in the content directory, such as “new_page.html”. Compile again, and the new page will be created in the output directory.

nanoc supports many kinds of marks to write html pages, such as Markdown, which makes writing easier!
