The Exaltation Blog Generator

Using tools built with the Myna parsing library I have released the blog generation software I used for my personal blog in a standalone repository called Exaltation.

Exaltation is designed for people with some some rudimentary programming knowledge, but who don't want to go through the effort of having to learn a bunch of web technologies and frameworks.

Using Myna in Practice

One of the motivations for the Exaltation project was also to demonstrate that the Myna library is a mature and capable parsing library by using it in a real application. I used Myna sample tools to parse Mustache templates and markdown files.

Main Features

Here are some of the features of Exaltation:

Trying to Keep things Simple

I think that the biggest selling point of Exaltation is that the implementation is dead simple. It is less than 200 lines of JavaScript in a single file, and has a dependency on only the Myna parser module, which in turn has no other dependencies.

Anyway, I hope you find the blog generator useful in some manner or another. Enjoy!
