Page Skeleton


Page Skeleton will keep all your static pages in sync between local, staging, and production environments. Page Skeleton reads a file called skeleton.yml in the theme directory, and recreates page structure, title, templates, and content from there. skeleton.yml is a simple YAML-formatted file with the purpose of being easy to read (and edit, if need be) by a human.

No free support is offered for Page Skeleton; contact for commercial support.

DISCLAIMER: This software is provided as-is, without warranty of any kind. Data loss may occur if you are not careful.

  2. Activate!

Will this break my site?

It will if you aren’t careful. Please make sure you’re backing up your site regularly.

I don’t want to re-create my huge structure by hand. Is there an exporter?

Yes! Use the “Generate Skeleton” option to make the skeleton.yml file.
