Pagegen is a static web site generator, meaning it creates web sites from flat text files and directories. Great for managing sites from the command line.
There are many other static site generators (e.g. Webgen http://webgen.rubyforge.org/, WML http://thewml.org and Webby http://webby.rubyforge.org/). Pagegen tries to be different by making assumptions about the generated HTML and keeping the content files as simple as possible. This should mean less to learn and more time to focus on the content — which is king, after all.
Pagegen is designed to allow focus on writing content and easily manipulating it using the GNU/Linux command line. Content is contained in directories and flat text files. Pagegen uses Pextile http://pagegen.phnd.net/user-manual/pextile-markup-reference markup (a variation of Textile http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Textile_(markup_language)). Sites are created by making folders and adding content files, then generating HTML.
