Sinatra is really a single-use sort of thing, although it can generate
views and such, it's real intent is responding and routing.

Middleman is a static site generator that might be more what you are
looking for. It makes use of Sinatra for it's preview function, which is
pretty cool, When you build the static site, though, you can zip that up
and mail it to someone, stick it onna stick, etc.
