<picture>element, webp versions for the browsers who support it, frozen thumbnail for the loading and cropped thumbnails for previews.
- Bleeding edge natural language processing stack: Leveraging the latest advance in NLP Sitefab offers: An accurate list of related posts (LSI algorithm), a client side faceted search and a smart client-side autocompletion
- Fully customizable: Its flexible plugin system and templatized parser make it easy and fast to customize SiteFab to your needs.
Beside its technical features what separates SiteFab from other site generators is its guiding principles:
Configuration over convention: Every behavior is explictly specified. There are no special files or directories. SiteFab only do what the site configuration say. Nothing more, nothing less.
Content Agnostic: There is only one type of content called post. SiteFab makes no assumption about the content stored in the .md files. Its job is to apply the configuration specified in the frontmatter to render the specificied files and ensure that the enabled plugins are properly executed.
Atomicity: Each piece of content is self contained by having its own configuration in its frontmatter including which template to use. This allows to accomodate both complex sites with per page configuration and very simple ones that reuse the same template again and again.
Orthogonality: Site configuration, plugins and plugins configuration are independent of the core engine so you can use as many configurations and tweaked plugins you want. Additionally you can check those alongside with your site content to have reproducible build, safe rollbacks and concurrent version of the build pipeline (e.g alpha versus stable).
