Markdown is a file format and concise syntax whose first intent is to be converted to HTML. Today, you have tools to convert markdown in a wide variety of other formats
Because of that, I wrote Daneel’s documentation as well as several upcoming tutorials (more on that soon !) in markdown and I needed a simple way to setup a proper site from these markdown files.
I emphasized “simple” because Daneel’s documentation currently uses the docs bundle of the PHP framework Laravel 3.5. It works like a charm and does exactly want I need but it’s seriously overkill to just browse a bunch of static files !
That’s why I created just a small vanilla PHP script that lets you easily turn a bunch of markdown files into a static site. Basically, all you have to do is access the files through their path and voilà. It supports url rewriting as well as ommitting the .md extension in the url out-of-the-box.
Feel free to fork/share/do whatever you want with it !
