Simple static site generator

Project description


This is a super-simple static site generator. You can use it to write markdown files and quickly convert them to nicely-styled html. It is basically just some convenience functions built on top of the markdown library (required). This package will provide you with a very simple template for writing blog-like posts, as well as some simple css. Standard markdown syntax applies, and this is true for images and links.


Make sure you have activated your virtual environment and use pip:

python -m pip install simplepysite


cd to the directory where you would like to create a site, and run the following:

python -m simplepysite

This will create a template site for you. The "pages" folder contains the markdown files, and html files will be created wherever this command is run.

If you are working this into a workflow, you can also import it as follows:

from import establish_site, build_site

establish_site() # creates a pages folder, a sample markdown file, and a generic style.css which can be edited

build_site() # assuming there is a "pages" folder, all markdown files contained therein are converted to html
