Project description

Since the world needs more static site generators ([it]( [doesn’t](, I built one. It’s not “all things for all people”. Not a [747](, just a tiny [ultralight]( to automate some things.

Its goals are simple:

  1. Maintain a list of finished posts & unfinished ideas
  2. Render finished posts into an HTML template
  3. Do as little else as possible

The script is altogether ≈130 lines of Python code, and probably won’t ever be much larger (hopefully I’ll cut it down some). I chose [markdown]( formatting, and [Jinja2]( for templating, and S3 for deployment.

I’m calling it unn because naming things is hard.

Invoked from the command line, it knows how to do 3 things:

  • unn idea post-slug - start a new draft called “post-slug”
  • unn build - convert “published” files into an HTML site
  • unn deploy - deploy the site to S3 (& build it first)

To “publish” a post, I simply move the file from /ideas into /posts, and run unn deploy

It’s not perfect, but it does the job. Feel free to open a PR for improvements.

unn currently powers [](

## TODO:

  • bundle as python package w/ binary
