metanohi content manager and generator

Project description

mege is a combined content manager and content generator made specifically for the website “metanohi” (available at ). Because of lazyness, currently mege is tightly integrated with this website, though it should be possible to adapt it to work with other sites.

mege is in constant on-and-off development — special features are only added as they are needed — and there will not be any release out for a long time, if ever.

mege is both a command line tool and a Python module. It requires Python 3.1+.

mege uses bottle as its web framework, serves HTML generated from Org-Mode files, and uses Git for revisions. It uses modwsgi and the Apache web server.


mege is free software under the terms of the GNU Affero General Public License version 3 (or any later version, see file COPYING.txt or webpage for full license). The author of mege is Niels G. W. Serup, contactable at
