An extension to Sphinx for managing a blog or static website

Project description


An extension to Sphinx for managing blogs and static websites.

Alpha - incomplete, not well tested, breaking changes likely
Python Support:

2.7, further compatibility to come in beta

Chephren is an extension for Sphinx that adds features for managing static websites that are not software documentation. Sphinx is a great tool for documenting software projects, but it is missing some common features that would make it just as good for managing static websites. Features provided by Chephren include:

  • Marking a distinction between “posts” and utility pages like the search or about page

  • Allow posts to bypass the “not found in any toctree” warning

  • RSS feed for your posts

  • Date-based archive page for your posts

  • Category-based archive page for your posts

What’s Missing

Lots of planned features don’t yet exist, even features you might expect. Here’s a list of things you cannot do (yet).

  • Rename the archive pages (you’re stuck with blog-bydate and blog-bycategory for now)

  • Create a separate page for each category

  • Paginate the feed

  • Produce a feed in any format except Atom (but Atom is widely supported)

  • Create a traditional-looking blog home page (without custom coding anyway)

  • Apply a custom template to a post
