A powerful static website generator and lightweight CMS.
PieCrust is a static website generator and lightweight CMS that’s all managed with text files. No complex setup, databases, or administrative panels. Simple, beautiful, and yummy.
For more information, along with the complete documentation, visit the official website.
If you want to quickly give it a spin:
pip install piecrust chef init mywebsite cd mywebsite chef serve
It should create a new empty site in a mywebsite folder, and start a small web server to preview it. You can then point your browser to localhost:8080 to see the default home page.
Use chef prepare page and chef prepare post to create pages and posts, and edit those in your favorite text editor.
When you’re happy, run chef bake to generate the final static website, which you’ll find in _counter. At this point you can upload the contents of _counter to your server.
Check out the CHANGELOG file for new features, bug fixes and breaking changes. You can see it online here.
You can install PieCrust like any other package:
pip install piecrust
For more options to get PieCrust on your machine, see the INSTALL file. You can see it online here.
