YASS - Yet Another Static Site (Generator)

As the name says, it is a static site generator written in Ada. It is headless application (no user interface, use it from console). Main goal of the project is to create a simple static site generator, with some basic functions but easily extendable. The program is available only for Linux 64-bit. For more information about the program, please look at documentation.

  • Advanced Ada Web Server HTML templates

    Composite tags allow easily creating lists or tables without HTML inside markdown files. Including system allow split and merge sites layouts on few reusable elements.

  • Full CommonMark support via libcmark

    Everything what is possible in CommonMark will be parsed to HTML.

  • Support almost infinite amount of custom tags in HTML templates (depends on available RAM) and separated tags for whole site and each page

    Just add tags to the site project configuration file or directly to markdown files.

  • Fast

    Just Ada and C. Should be one of the fastest static site generator available.

  • Can be extended with modules, written in any script/programming language

    Anything what can be run on your computer/server can be used as the program module.

  • Can generate sitemaps

    Generate sitemaps for the search engines, fully configurable. Can be disabled.

  • Can generate Atom feeds

    Generate simple Atom feeds from pages or choice one page as a source for the feed. Can be disabled either.

  • Auto reconfigure server when configuration file was changed

    The program in server mode monitor the site configuration file periodically and reconfigure self if needed. You don't need to stop it and restart to apply configuration changes.
