Thea » Quickstart
Thea is capable of a lot, but needs very little to Just Work™. I’ve put together a starter kit that, I hope, both covers some of the more common use-cases and gives a little insight into just how powerful Thea’s templating is (thanks to Tera).
The command below assumes you have Rust installed. If you’re new to the language, not to worry: Rust is 1-command-install.
$ cargo install thea
Clone the starter kit
$ git clone https://github.com/elliotekj/thea-starter my_new_site $ cd my_new_site
Thea will start on port 8765 by default. The
--dev flag disables caching.
$ thea --dev
Thea watches the
templates/ folders and will refresh the HashMap if any changes are made.
Note: Changes in
config/ require a server restart.
