Project description


Plugen is a pluggable static website generator designed to make building static websites fast, flexible, and easy. With its modular architecture, Plugen allows you to extend and customize its functionality through plugins, making it a versatile tool for creating a wide range of static websites.


  • Modularity: Plugen is built on a modular architecture that enables the use of plugins. You can easily extend its functionality by installing and configuring plugins tailored to your specific needs.

  • Flexible Templating: Plugen supports various templating engines, allowing you to choose the one that suits your preferences or requirements. You can use popular templating engines like Handlebars, Jinja, or even create your own.

  • Asset Management: Easily manage your website's assets, including stylesheets, JavaScript files, images, and more. Plugen provides asset bundling and minification to optimize your site's performance.

  • Markdown Support: Write your content in Markdown and let Plugen convert it into HTML automatically. Markdown makes it easy to write structured content without the need for complex HTML markup.

  • Theme Support: Plugen provides a theming system that allows you to apply pre-built themes to your website or create your own. Themes define the overall look and feel of your site, including layout, typography, and color schemes.

  • SEO Optimization: Plugen includes features to help optimize your website for search engines. You can define metadata, such as title tags and meta descriptions, for each page to improve search engine visibility.

  • Command-Line Interface (CLI): Plugen comes with a powerful CLI that provides a simple and intuitive way to generate your static website. Use commands like plugen build to generate your site or plugen serve to preview it locally during development.
