I had mentioned a while back that I had written a new application to serve this blog, written in Elixir, and called it “Eldir”. No sooner had I done that than I started goofing around with Go, and wrote a brand new application for serving this blog, which I’m calling “Sn”, for “Tin”.

Sn is built with the same concept in mind as with Eldir – to take as input a directory of markdown files (usually part of a local git checkout) and a config file, and serve a dynamic, templatized site from them. The constraints I set for myself are basically the same, where I’d like to load all of the data into memory, and then never touch disk unless serving a static file directly.
