Tclssg

Tclssg is a static site generator written in Tcl that uses Markdown for content markup, Bootstrap for layout (with Bootstrap theme support) and Tcl code embedded in HTML for templating.

Features

  • Markdown, Bootstrap themes, Tcl templates;
  • Distinguishes between plain old pages and blog posts;
  • RSS feeds;
  • SEO and usability features: sitemaps, canonical and previous/next links, noindex where appropriate.
  • Valid HTML5 and CSS level 3 output;
  • Deployment over FTP;
  • Deployment over SCP and other protocols with a custom deployment command;
  • Support for external comment engines;
  • Relative links in the HTML output that make it suitable for viewing over file://;
  • Reasonably fast (can process 500 input pages into 650 HTML files in about 35 seconds on a laptop with an SSD);
  • Few dependencies.
  • Can be used as a library from Tcl.
