Issue 228 of Web Designer magazine is now available in the shops, in which you will find a four-page tutorial covering how to build awesome static HTML sites using Node and the immense Metalsmith package.
This is part one of a two part tutorial, both of which were co-authored with David Boyer who first introduced me to the Metalsmith project.
The tutorial guides the reader through the installation of required libraries and packages, setting up a local environment and running the tasks via the command line to compile your code from Markdown into the required HTML structures.
Update 14th November 2014
The second part of this tutorial is out now in issue 229 of Web Designer magazine.
