Top Open-Source Static Site Generators

Fork me on GitHub


Wintersmith is a simple yet flexible static site generator. It takes contents (markdown, less, scripts, etc), transforms them using plugins and outputs a static website (html, css, images, etc) that you can host anywhere.

It ships with plugins for markdown and jade templates, if you need something else check the plugin listing or write your own


Wintersmith is written by Johan Nordberg using CoffeeScript and licensed under the MIT-license.

The name is a nod to blacksmith which inspired this project.
