Project description


Micro-blogging with rST


Bade is a small command line utility to allow the user to maintain a simple HTML website and weblog using only plaintext rST for their content. It also bundles some rST directives and roles (see the docs) for:

  • rendering DOT graphs to SVG

  • rendering LaTeX to SVG

It’s very similar in spirit to some other things. It’s like Pelican but it’s a lot simpler and uses Mako instead of Jinja2. It’s also like Tinkerer but without the dependency on Sphinx. It also lets you use DOT and LaTeX.

Bade is opinionated and simplistic, I wrote it mostly my own usage, so you probably shouldn’t use it.

Plans to extend

In writing Bade, I came up with a few things more I’d like to do:

  • Test suite: Everything should be tested, right?

  • Git integration: For dirty checking on build, maybe stamping a rendered file with its latest commit hash. There are a few GitHub issues for it.

  • Hooks: Let people hook in at interesting points, ie. call grunt pre-build, commit after build, etc.


It’s here, there’s a tutorial.
