A python-based NoCMS which produces flat HTML sites from Markdown files and directory structure.
I spend a lot of my time in the command line so producing content via a repository and git is much quicker and easier than logging into a Wordpress site and editing there. Plus there's the history of the article in the commit messages for transparency.
- Get git file history and write into opened aside file - In progress
- Iterate through all folders in documents for markdown files
- Navigation? I didn't even consider that when I started
- Get links for images to process from md, not to go through the documents folder for them - this will save on cycles and we can also then iterate through the output html for each element at the same time, only writing in the necessary picture sources
- Work out what to do with images. Currently I'm looking at
imagemagick or gd-imagePillow to convert them to three sizes for a element (note: this is done now but needs to be abstracted to make it more useful and efficient)
- Add support for galleries and figures/figcaptions etc - my current thoughts are that it will be any images immediately following a ### gallery (Which I think is h3)
- Check if the remote the docs come from are ssh or https then edit the diff link accordingly
- Add support for video and audio - this is not going to be easy but I guess I can do a check for file extension after a !(alt)[url]
- Add githook for pulling changes to a server and running app - I need to research this more
I've been developing using virtualenv and suggest you do the same whilst the app becomes more stable and the dependencies stop changing.
$pip install virtualenv
$pip install -r requirements.txt
If you have not edited the general.ini then it will generate files for the site in the 'output' folder
