Yatiblog was created to power Tav's blog and to create documentation for projects like Ampify. It generates static HTML files from source .txt files from the information provided within:

  • yatiblog.conf
  • Any triple-dashed YAML metadata header within the text files.

Layout templates can be specified in the Genshi markup language and the templates are looked for in the _layouts directory.


For an example of yatiblog used to generate a blog, see:
