A modular, fast, simple, static website generator

Project description

In goes content, out comes a website, ready to deploy.

Why Static Websites?

Static websites are safer, use fewer resources, and avoid vendor and platform lock-in. You can read more about this in the Nikola Handbook

What Can Nikola Do?

It has many features, but here are some of the nicer ones:

Installation Instructions

The easiest way:

pip install nikola

Some features may require you to install additional python packages using pip.

Assuming you have pip installed and want the latest (could be a bit unstable):

git clone git://
cd nikola
pip install .

Optionally (for markdown and lots of other features):

pip install -r requirements.txt

For even more stuff, like tests and very optional features:

pip install -r requirements-full.txt
