monopati

A minimalistic static content generator.

You can read the relevant post on why I started building this. Monopati is inspired by other great minimalistic content generators, like bucket3 and habu.

license

Usage

Install from pypi:

sudo pip install monopati

On first run create the website folder:

monopati --path=mywebsite init

This will create a folder named mywebsite. Inside that folder there is a configuration example file that you should copy and edit to meet your needs.

cd mywebsite
cp config.yml.dist config.yml

Finally, build your website:

monopati render

This will generate all necessary files for serving the website, under the folder you picked as output in your configuration file.

Structure

Use posts, pages folders for blog and static content respectively.

Use templates for adjusting UI to fit your needs. Jinja2 template engine is being used for both templates and pages. Markdown for blog posts.

Example

The code comes with one example post (under the posts) folder. You can check how the metadata header is being user and some basic syntax and how images can be added to a post. Under the pages folder there is a static template example which serves as the landing and about page of your site.
