Wyam2 build Wyam2 nightly build GitHub commit activity

A continuation of the awesome project Wyam created by Dave Glick since it’s the only open-source, cross-platform .NET documentation project that I know of, except docFX.
For Windows-only there is also Sandcastle.


Wyam2 is a simple to use, highly modular, and extremely configurable static content generator that can be used to generate web sites, produce documentation, create ebooks, and much more. Since everything is configured by chaining together flexible modules (that you can even write yourself), the only limits to what it can create are your imagination.

The easiest way to get started is to install as a .NET Core global tool and use a recipe and theme.

  1. Download and install Wyam as a global tool:

    dotnet tool install -g Wyam2.Tool

  2. Scaffold a new blog:

    wyam2 new --recipe Blog

  3. Edit the scaffolded files.

  4. Build the blog with a theme:

    wyam2 --recipe Blog --theme CleanBlog

To go deeper, read more about the underlying concepts and then read about configuration files and the available command line arguments. Then check out the full list of modules.
