Ni is a static wiki generator. It allows you to write files that reference each other, and to generate an html output that includes links and back links.

How to run

ni input output template.html atom-template.xml url


  • input: source folder containing .gmi files
  • ouput: destination folder for .html files
  • template.html: html template file
  • atom-template.xml: xml template for atom feed
  • url: canonical url where your site will be hosted

How to use

In input folder, create files that end with .gmi. Use [[]] to reference other files in them. For example:

in coffee.gmi

# coffee

A popular machine is the [[aeropress]].

The above automatically create a link in the generated .html file, but it requires aeropress.gmi to be created:

# aeropress

Here is an example of template:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <nav><a href="/">home</a> <a href="/changelog.html">changelog</a></nav>
    {{ template "content" . }}
      <a href="">
	<img src="" alt="ichi"/>

Here is an example of an atom-template.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<feed xmlns="">
  <link rel="alternate" href=""/>
  {{ template "content" . }}

Finally, an example of a canonical url is: (make sure to add the trailing /)
