Trio v6.1.0
Documentation is evolving and is a WIP


Trio is a fast, simple yet powerful JavaScript-driven static site generator.

Trio's unique approach to extending your pages with dynamic content using its tag-based callback mechanism makes it stand out from other static site generators, which rely on either templating engines or frameworks.


Trio requires knowledge in coding HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Some Node experience is also needed - in particular, you should know how to use the CommonJS module system to import and export modules.

Effective Use Of This Documentation

This site serves as the official documentation site for the Trio project and its source is hosted on Github at 4awpawz/trio-docs.

  • It is recommended that you first read the Getting Started page to learn how to install Trio on your computer.
  • Then read the Core Concepts page, which will provide you with information about Trio's core concepts, such as what project assets are, and how Trio uses them to construct your site's pages.
  • Familiarize yourself with Trio's terminal command line interface.
  • Dig deeper into specific topics, which are listed in the documentation's index.
