Quick Preview

Here is how your code may look like if you were to generate your static site using Rib:

-- | Route corresponding to each generated static page.
--
-- The `a` parameter specifies the data (typically Markdown document) used to
-- generate the final page text.
data Route a where
  Route_Index :: Route [(Route Pandoc, Pandoc)]
  Route_Article :: FilePath -> Route Pandoc

-- | The `IsRoute` instance allows us to determine the target .html path for
-- each route. This affects what `routeUrl` will return.
instance IsRoute Route where
  routeFile = \case
    Route_Index ->
      pure "index.html"
    Route_Article srcPath ->
      pure $ "article" </> srcPath -<.> ".html"

-- | Main entry point to our generator.
--
-- `Rib.run` handles CLI arguments, and takes three parameters here.
--
-- 1. Directory `content`, from which static files will be read.
-- 2. Directory `dest`, under which target files will be generated.
-- 3. Shake action to run.
--
-- In the shake action you would expect to use the utility functions
-- provided by Rib to do the actual generation of your static site.
main :: IO ()
main = withUtf8 $ do
  Rib.run "content" "dest" generateSite

-- | Shake action for generating the static site

  -- Build individual sources, generating .html for each.
