The why:

I like the approach to managing a site taken by Jekyll. A lot.

I don’t like Ruby, and I don’t like strict logic-less templates. Jekyll is Ruby with Liquid as the templating engine.

Heckle is JavaScript with Mold (programmable template extravaganza) as the templating engine.

If you feel how Marijn feels and you don’t like Ruby, or strict logic-less templates — you should checkout Heckle. Marijn also asks that you not use Heckle at this point IF you want something stable and finished. It’s a work in progress.

Check out the source, or learn more about Heckle’s origins.
