Obelisk is a static site generator written in Elixir Programming Language.


  • Fast. Static websites can take a long time to generate when they start to grow large. obelisk should take advantage of Elixir’s processes to increase this speed.
  • Simple, Obvious. It should be very straight forward to add new content and modify the way that your site works.
  • Templatable. It should be possible to store templates in github repos and reference them directly, allowing modification of the look and feel of a site instantaneously with no manual installation.
