  • Nikola

    A static website and blog generator

    I tend to prefer static site generators for this kind of use case. I use Nikola, which is written in and based on Python. You should be able to pick whatever html5up template you like and turn it into a Nikola template, too.

  • sphinx

    The Sphinx documentation generator

    An actual Python static site tool that is very valuable to get proficient with is SphinxSphinx - it's primarily used for auto-code documentation (like ReadTheDocs) but I'm sure it's flexible for other things.

    camply, the campsite finder ⛺️ - a tool to find campsites at sold out campgrounds through sites like recreation.gov

    Here's a personal page built with Jekyll: https://juftin.com. And here's a Sphinx Page: https://juftin.com/camply. Both are actually hosted on GitHub pages for free.
