to Roda

Good morning everyone,
just started my journey into roda.

I want to migrate a camping-project to a roda-project.
Many components are reusable. 
I am familiar with Jekyll and use this framework for blogging and documentation.
It would be fantastic, if the roda-project could use the same approach, ie. liquid as template machine, frontmatter to separate content from configuration and (most valuable) to use jekyll-scss-templates for presentation. 

To implement a roda site as dynamic  version of a static jekyll project.

Is this possible, has anyone done this before and how much work to invest, prior to start writing the code for the project?

 Roda uses tilt for template rendering, and tilt supports liquid templates.  Not sure about frontmatter or jekyll-scss-templates.

I have multiple production Roda applications that generate static sites, but in those cases I'm just using erb for templates.  Depending on the application, I either use a page caching middleware and use a web spider to walk all the pages, or use a generator that explicitly requests pages and caches the results.

Thanks,
Jeremy
