NodeJS metalsmith

Build a simple blog

Assuming that you have node and npm installed and available, create a project folder with a valid package.json.
Install the necessary dependencies:

npm install --save-dev metalsmith metalsmith-in-place handlebars

Create a file called build.js at the root of your project folder, containing the following:

var metalsmith = require('metalsmith');
var handlebars = require('handlebars');
var inPlace = require('metalsmith-in-place');
 .build(function(err) {
 if (err) throw err;
 console.log('Build finished!');

Create a folder called src at the root of your project folder. Create index.html in src, containing the following:

title: My awesome blog
{{ title }}

Running node build.js will now build all files in src. After running this command, you'll have index.html in your build folder, with the following contents:

<h1>My awesome blog</h1>
