Neopolitan

TODO: Pull subtitle into page object

Why a new format?

In a word: Friction

I've been running my site for 20 years. When I realized that, I started thinking about what tools I want to use for the next twenty. Specificaly, how do I manage content? How do I do it in a way that provides the full power of HTML without being overly complicated? Without being so locked into another technology that changing the backend becomes a herculean task?

How do I reduce all those frictions that get in the way of putting things out into the world?

Those questions lead me to create Neopolitan. It's designed to make it easier to make things for the web.

Quickstart

Neopolitan is made of sections, attributes, and tags.

Sections

Documents are made of sections. They start with two `--`` characters followed by the section name. Here's an `h1`` header:

code_start_default_section code_end_default_section

Debugging Stuff

I'm moving stuff around right now. All this below is helping me figure out where to put stuff
