A minimal, generic skeleton project for the Sculpin static site generator.


  1. Download the project by running composer create-project opdavies/sculpin-skeleton --no-interaction --no-progress --prefer-dist my-sculpin-site.
  2. Run cd my-sculpin-site to change into the project directory, and composer watch to generate and serve the site.
  3. Start adding content to source/index.md.
  4. Add more content, settings, layouts, includes etc as needed.


This project includes some custom Composer scripts that you can use rather than running vendor/bin/sculpin directly, and that include some additional default options.

These are:

  • composer generate and composer dev - These generate the site in the development mode.
  • composer watch - Generates and serves the site in development mode, watching for any changes.
  • composer prod - Generates the site in production mode.

You can still pass additional options by separating the command and options with --. For example, running composer watch -- --port=8002 would run the default watch command but also update the server port:

composer watch -- --port=8002
> composer generate -- --server --watch '--port=8002'
> sculpin generate --clean --no-interaction '--server' '--watch' '--port=8002'
