dopresskit-static is a static version of the great Rami Ismail's presskit().

If you don't wan't to rely on PHP you can use it with the same xml files & directory structure as the original presskit().

You can even host it on dropbox : demo


  • Not PHP
  • More comprehensible source (thanks to python being python & the simple jinja syntax)
  • Hostable on dropbox or anywhere with a simple drag & drop
  • Compatible with the original presskit() xml files & directory structure
  • Each non-filled xml tags will hide the appropriate section in the generated page

Note : One thing you will lose from Vlambeer's version is the ability to make presskit requests through the server-side mail system.

Getting started

Go read the original https://github.com/ramiismail/dopresskit to see what presskit() is all about.

Python environment

It requires python 2.7 (2.6 probably works as well) and the jinja2 package.

If you're on OSX/Linux you might already have a proper environment.

Generate your static files

You should be able to compile a project as is with the default data.xml.

  • Run python generate.py, it will generate an index.html file at the root of your folder and in each of the project folders (by default, none).
  • Open index.html and it's done!
  • Edit the various data.xml files to your needs and run python generate.py again.

If you want to add a project, copy the _template folder and rename it, re generate the html files and a project should show up in the Projects section of the page.

Note : A project folder will be ignored if its name is starting with an _uppercase_, if containing any space and if not in lowercase. 'Super Crate Box' would have a folder named super_crate_box to be valid.

Google Analytics

To add google analytics support simply add your Tracker ID as an argument like this python generate.py UA-1234567-89
