Untitled is a static site generator. It is written in Bash, and it runs pandoc to generate HTML pages. It is a multi-site static site generator. It is intended for simple websites, particularly Free Software projects that want a full website but don't want to bother with more complicated web based publishing systems, or who don't want to mess around with HTML.
You write pages in Markdown, as
md files. The variant of markdown is the
Pandoc variant, which you can read about here:
Pandoc can convert between many formats, but Untitled only supports converting from Markdown into HTML. It is written precisely and exclusively with the goal of making it easier for Free Software projects to create their own websites. This is to fight against the trend of crappy github-powered websites that plague the internet. It is highly desirable to see a return to the days where software projects have websites!
This software is very new, so expect some rough edges, and funky looking
websites! Here are some websites that already are built using

Actually, it's not new at all. This static site generator was originally written for the Libreboot project website in 2017, but it was much simpler and even more broken than the version you're now reading about. That (very simple) generator was forked many times, across different websites, with different features added.
The untitled static site generator was created to combine the features of all the forks. Untitled static site generator was created by Leah Rowe, who also leads the Libreboot project. Untitled is heavily based on the original static site generator written by Alyssa Rosenzweig for the Libreboot website.
Untitled is Free Software. See the COPYING file included with
