Buccaneer Travis CI: continuous integration status

Buccaneer is a static site generator, written in Python.

  • Write your weblog entries directly with your editor of choice (textmate, sublime, vim, emacs,...) in reStructuredText or Markdown
  • Buccaneer is build with multilingual, multisite capabilities
  • Buccaneer started out as a fork of the famous Pelican tool
  • Completely static output is easy to host anywhere
  • Features are plugable due to improved plugin mechanism


Buccaneer currently supports:

  • Blog articles, pages, parts (for single page websites)
  • Theming support (themes are created using Chameleon or Jinja2 templates)
  • Publication of articles, pages, and parts in multiple languages to multiple sites
  • Hosting on Amazon AWS (S3, Cloudfront, Route 53) (optional)
  • Import from WordPress, Dotclear, or RSS feeds
  • Integration with external tools: Discuss, Twitter, Google Analytics, etc. (optional)
  • Fast rebuild times thanks to content caching and selective output writing.
