Build Status

Ornate is a tool for building multi-page HTML sites from Markdown sources. The design goals are:

  • Runs on the JVM; No installation required: Resolve the versioned dependencies in your build process for reproducible documentation builds with no external dependencies.
  • Based on CommonMark, a standardized version of Markdown.
  • Use well-established extensions: In particular, many developers are already familiar with Github-flavored Markdown.
  • Graceful degradation: Some features require proprietary syntax extensions. They should degrade gracefully when processed with a pure CommonMark engine.
  • Configuration based on Typesafe Config.
  • Modular design: Themes, templates, highlighters, extensions - everything can be customized with Scala code.
  • Clean, modern default theme using responsive design for a good user experience on all device from mobile phones to desktop PCs.
