A modular, fast, simple, static website generator
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:
Fast builds, thanks to doit
Flexible, extensible via plugins
Small codebase (programmers can understand all of Nikola core in a day)
reStructuredText or Markdown as input language (also Wiki, BBCode, Textile, and HTML)
Easy image galleries (just drop files in a folder!)
Syntax highlighting for almost any programming language or markup
Multilingual sites, translated to 18 languages.
Doesn’t reinvent wheels, leverages existing tools.
Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.3 and 3.4 compatible.
Assuming you have pip installed:
pip install Nikola
For optional features:
pip install Nikola[extras]
For tests (see tests/README.rst for more details):
