GreenHat has the following main features:

  • PHP-driven site creation software.
  • Uses Smarty Templates (version 3) for generating content.
  • Built-in Markdown processing via Parsedown.
  • Built-in SCSS processing via Leafo’s PHP SCSS compiler.
  • YAML-driven configuration and front-matter.
  • Uses PHP’s in-built server for testing, so you don’t need a full MAMP-stack with Apache.
  • Automatically generates tag and category pages, sitemap, feeds (Atom and JSON) and paged home pages.
  • Support for ‘collections’ and ‘sets’ of pages.
