Follows OSS Conventions

Landr understands most common repository conventions, and fully makes use of them. Build a great repository and get a great website for it: its a win-win!

Fully Automatic

Landr requires zero configuration. It's smart enough to figure out what it needs on its own. Point it to a repository, hold tight, and let Landr do its magic.

landr build

Build a static site using landr

  $ landr build

  -d, --deploy         Deploy the site to netlify after generating it
  -m, --meta=meta      The location of the meta file used to generate your landr site
  -o, --output=output  The output directory where we should generate your landr site
  -v, --verbose        Run in verbose mode

  Build a static site using landr into a local directory.
  By default this command will look for a meta.json file in the current directory
  to use as data for generating the site. The location of the data file can be
  specified using the -m flag.
  By default the site will be written to a folder named landr-dist in the current
  directory. The location that the site will be written to can be specified using
  the -o flag.
  You can also optionally deploy your site to netlfiy using the -d flag. Deploying
  to netlify relies on providing the NETLIFY_AUTH_TOKEN env var.

Landr is free software, and may be redistributed under the terms specified in the license.

Landr is balena's static site generator that helps edge developers and product builders create quick, usable websites. It uses open source standards, so that as long as the developer uses those conventions, they'll get a nice site. This means they can focus on building their product rather than maintaining their site, blog posts, docs, and versioning.

Our popular test sites in the wild include balenaSound and balenaSense, with more tests to come. We're also testing Landr sites for some balenaBlocks.

Landr is alpha software and its under heavy development, so various things might be broken in its best case! We warmly welcome new, detailed issues and contributions to help us improve Landr.
