Effortlessly deploy static sites.
Python HTML Makefile
Branch: master



staticjinja is a library for easily deploying static sites using the Jinja2 template engine.

Most static site generators are cumbersome to use. Nevertheless, when deploying a static website that could benefit from factored out data or modular html pages (especially convenient when prototyping), a templating engine can be invaluable. Jinja2 is an extremely powerful tool in this regard.

staticjinja is designed to be lightweight, easy-to-use, and highly extensible, enabling you to focus on simply making your site.

$ mkdir templates
$ vim templates/index.html
$ staticjinja watch
