Render HTML pages using Markdown and Jinja

Project Description

# Parseltongue

Render HTML pages using Markdown and Jinja

## Try it

`bash git clone cd parseltongue python install git checkout gh-pages parseltongue python -m SimpleHTTPServer `

## How it works

You put your posts as Markdown files in a _posts directory (not yet configurable) while your Jinja templates reside in _templates. Posted timestamps are automatically determined though you can add an html comment in your Markdown file to manually specify it. If you need a different template for a certain post, add a template file of the same filename. You can (should) take advantage of Jinja features like expressions and template inheritance.

### Drafts and listing

You can prepend an underscore (“_”) to the Markdown file’s name to mark a post as unlisted (only applies to the index page right now but will be used in archives and navigation later). Put two undescores for drafts (not rendered).

## Warning This project is still very rough. If you find something wrong or want to add stuff, feel free to post an issue or a pull request.
