simple blog generator

Project description

PyPI version Build Status


This is pre-alpha. Most things don’t work yet.

blogtopoid is a blog generator - it takes a bunch of posts, renders them to HTML and saves them to a web directory.


Work flow:

  • take all documents from pagesdir, render them and save them to outputdir/.
  • take all posts from inputdir, render and save to outputdir/YYYY/mm/dd/. post filename must be “YYYYMMDD post title.ext”.
  • generate index.html linking all posts.
  • generate rss feed including all posts.
  • generate listing pages for all used tags.
  • pack and copy style files from style/ to outputdir/style/.

Post formats

Currently posts and pages can either be markdown2 or reStructuredText.

In posts and pages {{blogurl}} gets replaced with blogurl from config, in style files {{styleurl}} with blogurl/style.


  • pip install –pre blogtopoid
  • run blogtopoid –quickstart
  • run blogtopoid
  • see post-receive.example for automatically deploying from git commits.


  • implement –post
  • TEST!
  • make a shipable default template
  • paginate index (not relevant with current index)
  • check hashes
