How does it work?

Quick and painless installation

Hyde is installed similarly to Laravel

Installation is easy by using composer. The installer creates a directory with all the files you need to get started, including Blade views and compiled Tailwind assets.

Save content in _source folders

Creating content is easy with Markdown

Put your Markdown or Blade content in the source directories. The directory you use will determine the Blade layout and output path that will be used.

Files are automatically discovered

Compiling is initiated with the HydeCLI

When running the build command, Hyde will take your source files and intelligently compiles them into the output directory. During this build navigation menus and sidebars will be generated automatically.

More about Hyde

HydePHP is a new Static Site Builder focused on writing content, not markup. With Hyde, it is easy to create static websites, blogs, and documentation pages using Markdown and (optionally) Blade.

Hyde is powered by Laravel Zero which is a stripped-down version of the robust Laravel Framework. Using Blade templates the site is intelligently compiled into static HTML.

Hyde is inspired by JekyllRB and is created for Developers who are comfortable writing posts in Markdown. It requires virtually no configuration out of the box as it favours convention over configuration. This is what makes Hyde different from other Laravel static site builders that are more focused on writing your blade views from scratch, which you can do with Hyde too if you want.

Hyde is designed to be seriously simple to get started with, while also remaining easily hackable and extendable. Hyde comes with a lightweight minimalist frontend layout built with TailwindCSS which you can extend and customize with the Blade components.

Due to this powerful modularity yet elegant simplicity, Hyde is a great choice for developers no matter what their background or experience level.
