Readme

Brigid

A simple blog engine, but not simpler than it should be.

Demo

  • My blog: tiendil.org — look there to see all the features in action.
  • Sources of the blog: https://github.com/Tiendil/tiendil-org-content — look there to see how content is organized.

Or run from the root of the repository:

poetry install

./bin/dev-server.sh

Features

  • Markdown as a source code for articles.
  • Multi-language support by design.
  • Mobile-friendly.
  • SEO-friendly.
  • No cookies.
  • Monolithic design: install and run. No need to look for plugins and themes.

Some specific features

Brigid is not a static site generator, i.e. you should run brigid process to access the site. It gives some advantages over classic static site generators.

  • Redirects.
  • Nice tags filtering (for wide pages only, for now).
  • Detect language by headers.
  • Sentry reporting.
  • More features are coming.

Design principles

A very subjective list of design principles I follow in this project:

  • One solid, stable, simple, up-to-date solution. Just install and run.
  • Markdown won => use markdown as the primary source for posts.
  • TOML won => use TOML for metadata and frontmatter instead of YAML.
  • No unnecessary or unused features.
  • Design for not trivial posts: long, multilanguage, images, code, etc.
  • Server-side rendering is good. Use it as the primary approach.
  • Use minimum JS only when it is really required.
  • No CSS experiments, only stable verified solutions.
