Top 15 Python Static Site Generator Projects

  • GitHub repo MkDocs

    Project documentation with Markdown.

    Project mention: D&D template? | | 2021-11-27

    I have similar folders to [Oudwin]( - dm - _inbox - assets - checklist - communications - research-reference - elements - sessions Additionally, I have had reasonable success using [obsidian-export]( to export my Obsidian vault to CommonMark. From there you have more options. I then build html pages using [mdbook]( to control the information that is revealed to players. I am playing with using [MkDocs]( to see if it offers more control/flexibility. Regardless, the /elements folder contains all the lore chunks of the world including information I keep on the PCs. The /communications and /sessions folders can contain info with links to /elements that are revealed as needed. I make heavy use of transclusion ![[CoolThingFormAnotherFolder]] to keep it a bit more elegant and some custom styles are needed to make it how it look how I wish.

  • GitHub repo Lektor

    The lektor static file content management system

    Project mention: Show HN: Kit55, a Desktop Web Builder GUI – Jekyll, Next, Wordpress Alternative | | 2021-10-27

    This somewhat reminds me of Lektor[0], 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!
