Socrates’s documentation

Socrates is a simple static site generator. It’s geared towards blogs. You write your posts in your favorite plain text to HTML language (e.g. Markdown, textile) and save them as text files on your harddrive. Socrates then takes them, and creates a full HTML site for you. For free, you will get a home page which lists latest posts, single post pages, category pages, archive pages, an about page and an atom feed.
