Lest is still work-in-progress (alpha version). While it's currently very usable and there are webpages made with Lest, some parts (dynamic and logic-less code) are not set in stone and are subject to change. You have been warned.
Lest is template engine / static site generator / server side system / whatever... with low entropy and high customization.
Lest removes unnecessary visual noise as
> or end tags and uses rich, efficient and natural REN syntax to describe the document in beautiful and concise way.
Markdown syntax can be used in every string to boost productivity and change the paradigma.
Custom plugins can be added very easily and basic distribution includes plugin for advanced Bootstrap support.
