ssg5 Added. changes from original to work on NetBSD/sdf, mostly removing -e, but adding a pipeline trace using a bash 3 years ago


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 here.

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)
