Generate as opposed to one-size-fits-all static contentmore dynamic websites from Markdown text. Optimized for creating text-heavy websites e.g., eLearning websites, online instruction manuals, project documentation etc..

Simple syntax. Dynamic content.

MarkBind source files can be as simple as basic Markdown, but you can also use a mix of several popular syntax schemes (GitHub Flavored MarkdownGFMD, BootStrap, NunJucks, etc. as well as MarkBind's own custom syntax) to create more dynamic content that you cannot normally get from a typical markdown-to-html site generator.

Here are some simple text-formatting examples:

Syntax scheme Code Output
Markdown **bold text** _italic text_ bold text italic text
GFMD ~~striked out text~~ striked out text
MarkBind extensions to Markdown ==highlighted text==
%%grey text%%
!!underlined text!!
highlighted text
grey text
underlined text

The example paragraph below has the following dynamic elements: a tooltip, a popover, and a modal. Hover/click on the underlined words to see each.

Everything you need for text-heavy websites, built-in.

MarkBind is highly optimized for creating text-heavy websites e.g., eLearning websites, online instruction manuals, project documentation etc. Anything that you might need for creating such websites are built-in, sparing you the hassle of finding/installing/searching plugins that you need.

Here are some examples:

Icons can improve the readability of a text-heavy document. MarkBind comes with a wide selection of icons and emoji.
With MarkBind's search feature, you can allow readers to search for keywords in your site.
MarkBind allows you to add site/page navigation menus, headers, footers easily.


More control to the reader, without duplicating code.

A MarkBind website can be a buffet of content, as opposed to a set menu: a site can have optional contents that the reader can access at her discretion, and the same content can be organized in multiple ways so that the reader can choose the one that fits the need. To cater (pun intended) for creating such buffet style websites, MarkBind has reuse mechanisms for presenting the same content in multiple ways without duplicating the source file.

For example, MarkBind has a powerful include mechanism that allows content fragments (i.e., a file or part of a file) to be reused at multiple places in the website. In the example below, both the modal and the expandable panel reuse the same content originating from a single source file.

Easy to set up, modify, deploy, integrate.

Installing MarkBind takes just one command. Creating a new MarkBind site too takes just one command. With MarkBind's live preview feature, you can see how your site will look like as you modify the source file. Deploying the site to a server can be as simple as one command too.

As MarkBind is also optimized for project documentation, it can easily integrate with the workflow of a software project.
