"Keep your content cancel-resistant."

Argo is a flat-file static-site blog authoring and building system. It presents a browser interface for ease of use, and synchronizes with any hosting service using Git or rsync.

Because Argo keeps all your content on your computer, no hosting service can ever deprive you of your content by cancelling your account. The content you create is always on your own computer. This makes Argo sites more resistant to censorship. Further, because Argo is a flat-file static-site system, remote hosting requirements are minimal. Only a web server and a syncing service are needed.

This repository holds the core PHP code powering the desktop application.
