Blade is a powerful, simple, and beautiful templating language, but until now it wasn't an option if you were building a simple static site that didn't need a complex PHP backend.
Jigsaw brings Blade to the static site world, so you can use the same templating engine for simple websites as you do for complex web applications.
@extends('_layouts.master') @section('body') <h1>Hello World!</h1> @endsection
Markdown is a fantastic writing format for things like articles, blog posts, or documentation pages.
Jigsaw makes it painless to create a layout in Blade, and fill it with content written in Markdown.
--- extends: _layouts.post section: content --- # Hello World! Welcome to the future.
We also preconfigure Elixir to watch your Blade files so your site is rebuilt automatically when you make a change. Combined with out-of-the-box Browsersync support, previewing your changes quickly couldn't be easier.
Check out our installation instructions and you'll be up and running in no time.
