Static sites generated with Clojure

Creating pages is not much different from writing posts. You're still required to include the map representing the metadata and the page must be written in valid Markdown.

The Pages Folder

Similar to your posts, all of your pages should reside under the page-root folder specified in your configuration file. Again, as long as the file contains the proper metadata followed by valid Markdown content, they will be converted into an HTML page.

Creating Pages

To create a new page, just make a new Markdown/AsciiDoc file under your page-root. You don't need to include a date in the file name or in the metadata like you did a post but words should still be dash-separated and the file must have a .md or .asc extension. For example:

about.md
my-projects.md
contact-me.asc

Page Contents

The following information is mandatory in your page metadata.

Key Description
title Your post title provided as a string.
layout A keyword corresponding to an HTML file under themes/{theme}/html.
page-index Because pages can be linked up with previous/next links, this is how they get sorted.

These are some optional keys that you may provide:

Key Description
navbar? Set this to true if you want the link to this page to appear in the navbar. Set it to false or leave out the key if you want it in the sidebar.
home? Set this to true if you want to use this page as your index rather than a blog post or list of previews. Only one page may have this flag set to true. This page will not be part of your navbar-pages or sidebar-pages collection. The :layout key will be respected. :previews? must be set to false in the config.edn.
klipse Set Klipse configuration for the post. See Klipse Integration for details.

For example:

{:title      "Check out this page!"
 :layout     :page
 :page-index 0
 :navbar?    false
 :home?      false}

Images in Your Pages

You can include images in your pages in the same way you include images in your blog posts. Please refer to the "Including Images in Posts" and "Images in Markdown" sections of the Writing Posts page.

Highlighting Code Snippets

Want to show off your code in a page? It works the same way as it does in posts. Just wrap your code block in triple backticks and highlight.js will take care of the rest.
