PieCrust is a static website generator and lightweight CMS that's all managed with text files. No complex setup, databases, or administrative panels. Simple, beautiful, and yummy.
For more information, along with the complete documentation, visit the official website.
If you want to quickly give it a spin:
pip install piecrust chef init mywebsite cd mywebsite chef serve
It should create a new empty site in a
mywebsite folder, and start a small
web server to preview it. You can then point your browser to
to see the default home page.
chef prepare page and
chef prepare post to create pages and posts,
and edit those in your favorite text editor.
When you're happy, run
chef bake to generate the final static website,
which you'll find in
_counter. At this point you can upload the contents of
_counter to your server.
