Just-in-time development server and static site exporter written in Node.js. Rosid invokes functions before serving files to the browser. This allows you to pre-process anything on-the-fly, without saving it.
What is Rosid?
Rosid is a framework that focus on two features:
- A development server with live-reloading, which transforms files as soon as you request them.
- A static site generator, which transforms files using defined transform-functions.
- It doesn't force you to use a defined directory structure
- It's build on popular modules like Browsersync
- It integrates nicely with tools you are are already using to transform your files (e.g. Gulp, Grunt or Vanilla JS)
- It's lightweight and only includes what it really needs
- Transformed files don't need to be saved along their source files
- It lets you compile code to static files to host them anywhere
How does it work?
Rosid starts a server and compares requested URLs with user-defined patterns. A associated file handler will be executed when a pattern matches. The handler receives information about the request and can transform the file, which will be send to the browser.
