most recent Noddity development has been driven by the needs of my pastor. @saibotsivad and @ArtskydJ and I are setting up a publishing pipeline for him that involves a web site powered by Noddity.

the next things on the list are: a solution to get static html files served up, and the ability to add modules to specific Noddity instances, like a searching module

ah, ok - neat
so i guess currently all html is generated from markdown?

correct. And it happens at the last possible minute.
In the webapp, that's client-side
The client actually caches the markdown in localstorage
and it gets converted to html right before it is handed to Ractive

I need to update that, since then noddity-renderer was refactored into noddity-render-dom and noddity-render-static
the API for the butler is probably the main place to start https://github.com/TehShrike/noddity-butler#noddity-butler

most app things that you would build in the Noddity would would interact with the Butler
it abstracts away the fetching of posts from the server, and caching them locally

should there be github issues for the to-do items?

Probably :-) we've been pretty ad-hoc about the high-level goals
but @ArtskydJ has been doing a good job getting issues written for the details

haha fair enough
the next things on the list are: a solution to get static html files served up, and the ability to add modules to specific Noddity instances, like a searching module
want me to create some issues for those?
what about the stuff on http://noddity.com/#!/post/vision.md
