## Required Settings



('stacks_page/default_page_template.html', 'Default Page Template'),

A list of templates you can select for a page.


('path/to/template_file.html', 'Human Readable Template Name'),
('path/to/another/template_file.html', 'Human Readable Template Name #2'),


Used to define servers where pages can be published to.

'staging': {
'server': 'user@staging_server',
'webroot_folder': '/absolute/path/to/webroot/on/server',
'base_url': ''
'production': {
'server': 'user@prod_server',
'webroot_folder': '/absolute/path/to/webroot/on/server',
'base_url': ''

TODO: Document 'path_processor'!


A path on local disc where statically generated StacksPage instances
should be saved-to.


For local development, you'll probably want to set this dynamically. The following code will create a directory named `stackspage_build` at the same level as your project's settings file:

import os
BASE_DIR = os.path.dirname(os.path.dirname(__file__)
STACKSPAGE_BUILD_DIRECTORY = os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'stackspage_build')


The path your Stacks application is running from, defaults to '/'.
