Tool - Pancake.io  

  productivity   Jun 28, 2014

Pancake.io is a simple tool that let you create and publish static web pages from a dropbox folder or a git repository.

How does it works ?

Step 1

Connect Pancake.io to your Dropbox account

Step 2

Create a project

pancakeinstall2

It will create text files into your Dropbox > Applications > Pancake.io directory.

Step 3

Now go to [subdomain].pancakeapps.com and look at the example page.

If you have an example.txt file, then it will be reachable at [subdomain].pancakeapps.com/example.

Features

There is a simple template engine, that let you customize your static page as you want.

For that, you have to create a template document (my_template) :

doctype html
html
  head
    title Pistachio Pizzeria
    link rel='stylesheet' href='/style.css' type='text/css'

  body
    == content # will display content here

And in your page (my_file.txt) :

---
template: my_template
---

Your content goes here

You can also use variables into your template (for more info check http://docs.pancake.io/docs/templates).

Here is a page I’ve made, with the default theme but custom css rules: lilleauxvelos.pancakeapps.com.
