What's new in mynt v0.2

With v0.2 comes a handful of changes to make working with mynt sites easier. Now available are init, watch, and serve commands. Also, along with these new commands comes a default theme. Lastly, to accompany these changes is a reworked quickstart guide. The goal of these changes being to make mynt more accessible.


The biggest of these changes is the addition of three new commands. The first of which being init. The init command allows you to quickly setup a new site either using the new default theme or a bare directory structure.

Next is the watch command. Now instead of having to manually regenerate your site every time you’ve made a change you can now use the watch command which will automatically regenerate your site whenever a change in the source is detected.

Lastly, there is the serve command. If you don’t have a local server setup, you can now use the serve command to quickly host your site locally for developing and testing.

To read more on the new commands and how to use them, check out the directory structure and commands sections of the quickstart guide.

Default theme

Now included with mynt is a default theme. The default theme comes with an annotated config file and a handful of useful built-in features, such as an Atom feed and the easy addition of profile links to various social sites.

To get started with the new default theme, use the new init command.

$ mynt init ~/projects/my-site/

You can see it in action right here as the new mynt site is using the new default theme.
