Static Site Generator

Project Description

Nib is a static site generator, written in Python, geared toward creating a simple site or blog. Nib uses a pluggable content pipeline that differentiates between “resources” like CSS or Javascript, and “documents” such as static pages or blog posts. The two pipelines are similar, are executed in parallel, and define multiple hooks where plugins can process a subset of entities, and even remove entities or generate new ones at runtime.

An example site generated from the default wizard and templates is available at http://nib.noswap.com

Requirements

  • Python 2.7 or 3.2+

Installation

To install the latest official release:

$ pip3 install nib

or to install the version currently checked out from source:

$ pip install -r requirements.txt $ python3 setup.py install

Getting Started

Once Nib is installed, you can generate basic configuration and site using the built-in wizard:

$ mkdir somesite && cd somesite $ nib wizard …

Once the wizard is complete, you should have a site configuration file, some example documents (a page and two blog posts), and a minimal site theme consisting of resources (favicon, CSS, and robots.txt), and templates:

$ ls config.nib documents/ resources/ templates/

$ ls documents about.md links/ posts/

$ ls resources favicon.ico main.less robots.txt

$ ls templates feed.xml list.html macros.html page.html post.html posts.html

To build the site:

$ nib … Done

The resulting HTML and resources will be in the site/ directory:

$ ls config.nib documents/ resources/ site/ templates/

$ ls site 2012/ about.html archive.html favicon.ico feed.xml index.html links/ main.css posts/ robots.txt tags/

To test the resulting site, Nib can run a simple HTTP server, as well as open the local server in your preferred web browser:

$ nib serve Serving site on port 8000… press Ctrl-C to terminate. ^C Done

or:

$ nib serve –port 9000 –browse Serving site on port 9000… press Ctrl-C to terminate. Opening http://localhost:9000 in web browser… ^C Done
