Content is a bunch of Markdown files (or plain text files), called Pages, organized in folders. Folders in the root are called Section (ie: "Blog", "Project", etc.).


A Page can contain a front matter and/or a body.

Front matter

Any file that contains a front matter will be processed to extract some variables. The front matter must be the first thing in the file and must be a valid YAML.

Predefined variables
