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:

* `Blogs, with tags, feeds, archives, comments, etc.`__
* `Themable`_
* 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.
