Lektor is a static website generator. It builds out an entire project from static files into many individual HTML pages and has a built-in admin UI and minimal desktop app.

To see how it works look at the example folder which contains a very basic project to get started.

For a more complete website look at lektor/lektor-website which contains the sourcecode for the official lektor website.

How do I use this?

For installation instructions head to the official documentation:
