This wiki is no longer in use. Use the nanoc wiki on GitHub
instead. Not everything from this wiki was migrated to the new wiki because quite a bit was no longer relevant. The contents of the old wiki are nonetheless preserved here in case you need it.
Welcome to the Trac for nanoc! This trac contains a wiki (which you are viewing now) as well as an issue tracker. You're encouraged to contribute to this wiki—simply start writing!
