# ssg-for-sdf
I just started messing around as part of looking for a way to make
contributing to tutorials easier, and got as far as using 'ssg', from [[]], which was recommended as a markdown-converting static site generator on another board
I had problems with not working (I posted to REQUESTS, somehow
the perl Text:Markdown isn't working), but I used cpanm and installed that
library locally, and then ssg worked!
Because I didn't like how it silently would fail on the markdown problem,
so I added a little pipeline-tracing with the bash 'connector' command (I
looked it up), and so with that it becomes a bash script instead of a plain
sh script, but I think it's better. I posted it to the sdf git if anyone
wants to try it out...
(Here's what I used to [[| install the perl module I needed with cpanm]] which you can ignore installing cpanm because it's already installed on SDF)
