Static Site Generator Request

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.

Why I built another static site generator: A love story

I have used a few static site generators over the years including Hugo, Jekyll, and Pelican to host my personal blog. And I have experimented with a few others including Lektor and Gatsby.

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)

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!

lektor offers some of this functionality. editing is done locally through a browser UI, but there may be a way to host the interface. deployments are easy.

Shameless plug: If you want a static site generator with an admin UI I can recommend Lektor (https://www.getlektor.com/). You declare your data model and templates and Lektor serves an editing UI for you. There is a good video introduction by Armin Ronacher (original author) if you prefer to digest video content: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTWTCwuPdrU
Disclaimer: Occasionally I moonlight as a maintainer of Lektor.
Trying to work around a Jekyll site-building tutorial without using Jekyll
2 projects | reddit.com/r/webdev | 29 Jan 2023
You can - you'd basically just create a python script that parses your HTML/CSS files and replaces strings with values from your YAML. However I wouldn't recommend that unless you're just using this as an opportunity to learn Python. If you want to standup a real site and you want to use python, I'd recommend a Python static site generator like Pelican or Nikola.

My own blog and portfolio site is hosted on github pages. Since I'm knowledgeable with web development, I use a static site generator, it's a software which generates your site pages for you on the fly based on pre-determined html/css structure and markdown posts. The setup exists in a single folder and all you have to do is push the generated html files to a github repo and the content becomes live on site! It's 100% static and hence 100% free, no PHP scripting or apache or whatsoever. Jekyll and Pelican are the most popular static site generators if you wish to go that route.

I know exactly what you mean by the part to have all the files locally and rsync them on the server. I use Pelican as a static site generator and my blog articles are markdown files in a git repository.

Markdown is a great format, and I used it for all my blog posts since I started writing. Pelican, which is the static site generator that I use, supports Markdown out of the box, so it was extremely easy to start using it, and overall I had an enjoyable experience.

Should I use Ghost or Hugo for a blog ?
3 projects | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 11 Aug 2022
I just switched from Ghost to Pelican (a static site generator) to create my own website. Among the elements that convinced me to change is the portability of the data that gives you to use a static site generator and write everything in Markdown. They are simple text files and I can edit them as I please (also offline). Another great thing is that Pelican adapts according to the tags and categories I use.

who is self-hosting a static website and what are you using to build it?
8 projects | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 11 Jun 2022
I do (The Wombelix Post) and use Pelican with a customized Theme and a few Plugins. Took me initially some time to setup and adjust based on my needs but works great since then :)
