A damn simple markdown-based website

Summary: markdown-files-based, Bootstrap-based CMS, w/ dynamic navigation menu generation.

PC Snapshot

Markdown files use the markdown syntax, a very easy way to add typographical enhancements in your texts. The /resources directory contains various markdown files, prefixed with a ordered number: Just add/modify markdown files in it: they will generate links in the navigation bar of your website.

Just start creating your own markdown files in the ./resources directory, and your website is up.

Markdown philosophy reminder: "A Markdown-formatted document should be publishable as-is, as plain text, without looking like it’s been marked up with tags or formatting instructions."

Anyway, you can mix html, inline-css (even if it's bad) & markdown between html tags, using a markdon="1" html attribute (see page in this demo).

Design: The website uses the latest version of Twitter Bootrap; you can tweak it easely, following the Bootstrap documentation. Gears: Silexmarkdown project makes use of php-markdown library & the Silex Markdown Service Provider
