Static blog generator.

Project description


bucket3 is a simple, blog aware, static site generator written in python. It reads your content and spits out a complete, static website suitable for serving with Apache or your favorite web server. [1]

bucket3 would like to become a virtual “information bucket” where you throw
pieces of information (texts, images, audio, etc), and presents them in a nice
blog-like format.

Quick intro

1. Download the bucket3 code.

2. Install jinja2 and markdown2.

3. Edit conf.yaml or create a new one (see conf.yaml.example)

4. Put your posts under posts/ They don't have to be in the same directory, as long as they are under "posts/", you can organize them in any way you like.

5. run --conf=your_conf_file --skel --new-posts

6. You should now have your whole blog under "html_dir" (as defined in your conf file).

7. Upload the files to your server.


conf.bucket3com.yaml, _themes/bucket3com and the posts under posts/ are the source of is also generated using bucket3.


bucket3 is distributed under the MIT LICENSE.
