Last time we had an introduction to Fornax loaders and generators. Today we're going to build a custom loader and generator using an external REST API.
Last time we had a brief introduction to Fornax (a static site generator written in F#). We went over a brief introduction of getting up and running as well as an overview of the files in a Fornax project. This time we're digging into a nuts and bolts by covering loaders and generators.
Fornax is a static site generator written in F#. I think it's pretty neat. Fornax generates static sites through a pipeline of F# scripts called loaders that inject content into a global context that is then consumed by more F# scripts called generators that mold the content its final form. The workflow is decidedly hands-on with a distinct code first approach. This gives Fornax incredible flexibility.
