[Proposal] Custom Output Formats


Hi, following discussion on the bugtracker, i took a little time to explicit what custom output format support could look like in Zola.

It’s all taking place on a pad following cooperation guidelines proposed on the bugtracker ⁽¹⁾ (these can of course be question and amended).

If something on the pad is not clear please point it out. I intend this draft document to slowly evolve into the actual documentation page about this particular feature.

Feel free to provide constructive criticism and outrage if i missed some obvious issue :slight_smile:

⁽¹⁾ Sorry i can’t post more than two links in a post as my account is new so you’ll have to search the page for “those guidelines”.

RFC: Generic file assets

Now that 0.6 is out of the door we can look at that, I didn’t forget about it!

Ok I understand better custom output formats now.

It does make sense to support that I think if we can make it easy to do so and it looks easier to implement than I thought.

Does anyone know open-source projects using them a lot in Hugo or something similar to see some use in real life?
