the 0.1.3.1 bugfix
Hablo is a minimalist tool written to generate a simple blog structure from markdown articles.
Its key principles are to keep your blog a collection of markdown files while being completely static, leveraging the fediverse to handle comments. The best image you can have of a hablo blog is a HTML/JS article viewer. Despite this heavy usage of JS, it strives to provide a clean site that can still be displayed if JS is disabled and used to get links to the markdown files themselves.
Hablo is written in haskell and uses cabal for installation. The following instructions assume your version of cabal is fairly recent (≥ 1.24) please adapt them if you're running an older version of it, for instance on a Debian Jessie (the same command without the
new- prefix roughly work but you might want to use sandboxes — read about it).
Simple install with cabal
Just issue the following line in a terminal
cabal new-install hablo
Alternatively, if you prefer to do things yourself you can do a
Simple install with nix

nix-env -f 'https://git.marvid.fr/Tissevert/mynixpkgs/archive/main.tar.gz' -i hablo
