Publii: Open-source local WYSIWYG static site CMS

There is a somewhat similar system called Lektor, written by Armin Ronacher (of Flask/Jinja fame): https://www.getlektor.com/ You define your models, then start the local devserver to add entries for the models. In the end, it stores the data in the filesystem and outputs static HTML.

Lektor might be worth a look: https://www.getlektor.com/
After creating a site you start a local server by executing "lektor run" in the local folder, then preview the site in your webbrowser. There you get a edit-button whivh opens a backend with which you can edit the website. From that backend you can hit an upload button which allows you to push the static site directly to a remote (e.g. via scp)

Show HN: Kit55, a Desktop Web Builder GUI – Jekyll, Next, Wordpress Alternative

This somewhat reminds me of Lektor, which is a sort of front-end GUI application (really just website/page in front of a locally-run web server) that allows for folks to edit and post content as a static site generator and without needing a CLI. Lektor happens to be open source and based on python. This also reminds me of MovableType! Either way, I think we need more of these types of tools; both for techs and non-techs alike! Best of luck to the Kit55 folks!
