Static blog generator

Project description

wt - static blog generator


Current Version Build Status


Yet another static blog generator with following features:

  • markdown for content
  • yaml for configuration
  • jinja2 for templates
  • atom for feed
  • two types of content - page and post
  • yaml-formatted front matter for content metadata
  • simple HTTPServer for development


It was curiosity - "how would I do it?" and good intentions - "let's create something easy to work with".


wt documentation is available online.



The only hard dependency is python3.


$ mkdir blog && cd blog
$ mkdir env && virtualenv -p python3 env && source ./env/bin/activate
$ pip install wt


$ wt init .


Your blog must have configuration file written in yaml and named wt.yaml (name can be changed).


While writing content (ie in development mode):

$ wt develop

This command will start the development server listening at

When content is ready you will need to build it:

$ wt build


  • <input type="checkbox" checked="" disabled="" /> documentation
  • <input type="checkbox" checked="" disabled="" /> posts list pagination
  • <input type="checkbox" disabled="" /> support for tags
