garden šŸŒ±

šŸ‘‹hi. welcome to, where i'm building (and writing about building) a next.js powered digital garden starter. 'garden' is opinionated boilerplate for your digital gardening. check out the repo, and read about some of the motivations for building garden below.

here are some of the things garden does out of the box:

  • mdx and next.js powered static site generation
  • build relations between and among mdx files
  • easy styling using theme-ui and styled-system

here are some of the things coming soon:

  • search and tag filtering
  • source content from different sources and render with related templates
  • cli for scaffolding content
