HydePHP is an open-source console application that turns easy-to-use Markdown text files into amazing static websites, backed by the power of Laravel.


Feature List

While the full feature set is too long to list on this page, here are some things I think will make you especially fall in love with Hyde!

Easy Content Creation

Markdown, Blade, both? It's up to you.

Create content with Markdown and let Hyde do the heavy lifting. Sprinkle in some Front Matter for extra credit.

Built-in Frontend

Batteries (and more) Included

Hyde comes shipped with a full-featured frontend using TailwindCSS and customizable Laravel Blade templates.

The power of Laravel

Based on Laravel Zero

Laravel Developers will feel right at home with Hyde. Scaffold files using the Artisan-based HydeCLI and use Blade templates.

Customizable to the Core

Convention over configuration

Hyde is pre-configured for the majority of use cases. Not happy with something? You have the power to change it.


We are proud to hear that so many people use Hyde to build their websites. Here are some of our favourite mentions.

What I'm mostly impressed with is how clean and straightforward the documentation is. Writing good documentation is an art and Caen did an amazing job at it.

HydePHP is actually simple to setup. Now, I'm not a PHP developer and I can barely write a function in this language, but the project actually delivers on what it promises.
