Using Aoife

As mentioned in the Quickstart, make sure Aoife is in your PATH. you can test this by opening a Terminal and typing aoife help. You should see something like this:

$ aoife help
Aoife is a flexible static site generator built with love by Garry Pettet
and written in Xojo.

The main command is aoife, used to build your Aoife site.

Complete documentation can be found at

  aoife [command]

Available commands:
  create       Create new content for your site
  version      Print the version number of Aoife

Use aoife help [command] for detailed help on a specific command.

Common usage example

I suspect the commonest usage of Aoife is running the build command from within the root of a site:

$ aoife build
Success ✓
0 future posts
5 pages written to disk
Site built in 79 ms

The command builds your site, saving the HTML files to the /public folder. All you have to do now is copy that folder (using FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, etc) to your server for deployment. Since Aoife generates plain old HTML, you can host it virtually anywhere including DigitalOcean, Dreamhost, GoDaddy, Amazon S3 and GitHib Pages.
