Neopolitan Goals


This pages is just scratch notes right now to put my thoughts together for a first draft.

The Foundation

The fundamental goal of Neopolitan is to reduce the friciton between having an idea and pushing it live. The design pushing and pulls on the other formats to setup a new balance point between them and html. A new compormise in the landscape.

The Parts

The project ended up being two parts: The format, and a static site generator that uses it. This page introduces the format. The generator is called Neopolengine. You can find details about it here.
