PFT is one of my personal projects. It is a static website generator, in fact the one I maintain this website with.
With a static website generator your content is compiled into a static website and the result can be served by a simple HTTP server, with no need for server-side dynamism.
PFT is composed by a toolkit of scripts for the command line (App-PFT) and by a library that abstracts away the file formats and file-system layout (PFT).
Both components are published on CPAN, and available under my CPAN profile.
Both are also published as Fedora packages and therefore available for installation:
# dnf install pft
PFT is definitely not a novelty product. Actually it turns out to be quite common for computer geeks to write their own website engine, so you can find dozens of similar software.
I wrote PFT with a couple of goals:
Exercising a complete control over my website, while keeping complexity at bay;
Learning the Perl programming language;
Learning more of software distribution;
Contributing the world with an excellent and thoroughly documented open software product.
