Blog-oriented static website generator using Markdown or reStructuredText.
Pynfact is a simple static website generator oriented to chronological content, like blogs or websites with historic and sequential data. It allows integration with external scripts, comment engines such as Disqus, TalkYard, etc., or Google Analytics… Theming and configuration is possible by editing Jinja2 templates.

$ pip install pynfact
(If your default version of Python is 2.x, maybe you need to type pip3 instead of pip)
The interaction is done by command line. Only a few commands are needed:
pynfact --init=<myblog>: Create a folder with all needed content
Go to that directory: cd <myblog>
Configure settings in config.yml, title, name, language…
pynfact --build: Generates the static content
pynfact --serve=localhost: Serves locally to test the results (by default at localhost:4000)
Perform tests and upgraded to release candidate version (1.3.1rc2)
Parsing read the content input files just once, and not several times
Logging errors now can be redirected to stderr, stdout and not only to a file, using the command line --log (or -l)
Refactor document parser and metadata gathering
Perform tests and upgraded to beta version (1.3.1b1)
Add reStructuredText support (docutils)
Validate input metadata (titles, and dates if required) in Meta
Update setup.py to fix missing dependency PyYAML
CLI interface with argparser and more modularized
Generate pages slugs as posts, i.e, from the title, not the filename
Add logging support using logging
Put every page in the same directory: pages
Deploy as Python package at PyPI: https://pypi.org/project/pynfact/
Add Esperanto locale (eo)
Simplify Builder class constructor, now takes a configuration dictionary, sorted semantically
Replace pyatom for feedgen to generate RSS/Atom syndication feeds
Refer to CHANGELOG file for more details.
Why this name?
Granted it will be used on the “web”, the word “log” in Latin may be translated as INdicem FACTorum, hence InFact or -nFact to be more easily pronounceable when prepending the prefix py-, an indicator of the programming language where it has been developed.
Also, pyblog, pyblic, pyweblog and many other cool names were already taken.
This project is still in development, so there are probably lots of bugs that need to be fixed before deploying a stable release. If you find a bug, please, report it at the GitHub issue tracker.
