Thank you for sharing the link to the source code. My simple site generator is based on my wife's project makesite.py. In fact, I used her site generator for a few years before I went all in on Common Lisp for my personal projects. Then I reimplemented makesite.py in Common Lisp.
A good replacement for Drupal that is docker friendly?
5 projects | /r/selfhosted | 14 Oct 2021
I ended up using the developer-focused https://github.com/sunainapai/makesite , but I heard Hugo and Jekyll have plenty of themes that I assume can be dropped in. Good luck!

There's also Pelican but I haven't used it and seeing as Github serves static pages I'd imagine it builds and deploys your page and is done with it.
Ask HN: Which Python or Rust-based static site generators to use as of 2023?
3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 4 Mar 2023
I use Pelican (https://getpelican.com/) for my blog, which works decently for me. It is a static site generator written in Python.
But you probably won't learn much Python by using it (or Rust when using a generator written in it) since you probably won't need to change anything in it.
Creating a Python Wiki application
2 projects | /r/learnpython | 28 Feb 2023
Surely a "local private wiki ... not web based ... on a desktop application" is not really a "wiki" at all, but rather a "static site generator" with a built-in "search". If that's what you want, there's a Python app called Pelican. Writing such an app from scratch isn't really a beginners project.

Trying to work around a Jekyll site-building tutorial without using Jekyll
2 projects | /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.
