The first thing you’ll need to do is to create a directory for you website:

mkdir mysite

Lanyon will look for articles in a directory called input, so you’ll need to create this as well:

mkdir website/input
cd website

Now you can execute the lanyon command. The output should look like this:

OK (0 articles; 0.0 seconds)

You can start writing articles now. Let’s create an empty file and run the lanyon command:

touch input/hello.rst

The output should look like this:

OK (1 article; 0.29 seconds)

If you take a look at the directory listing, you’ll see that an output directory was created. This directory holds the generated website. You can open up the generated article output/hello.html in you browser.
