Tuts+ Premium - Building Static Websites with Hammer for OS X
November 28, 2013 Web Design \ Implementation l
Content Management Systems are often unnecessarily complex for building simple websites, but using a CMS will usually make sense because of the limitations of plain HTML pages. Hammer is a Mac application, developed by Riot, and bridges the gap between building static HTML and dynamic web pages. Using Hammer we’re going to build a multi-paged website, practicing rapid workflow and finely tuning our output for performance. We’ll look into using variables, includes, intelligent paths and many more of Hammer’s features. Once done, we’ll look at our deployment options (no PHP server needed!) even using the GitHub to publish our site to GitHub pages. Plenty to do then.
