In the spirit of his generosity and in the hopes it might be useful to others, I'm open sourcing my version of it as well.
This repo is a static website builder/generator implemented in Python using the following tools:
Note: you need a working installation of Python and pip. I've recreated the sitebuilder script as a python package, so you can install it in your virtualenv.
$ git clone https://firstname.lastname@example.org/crlane/cameronlane.org.git blog $ cd blog $ git submodule update --init --recursive $ virtualenv --no-site-packages `pwd`/env $ source env/bin/activate (env)$ pip install -r requirements.txt $ pip install -e .
That'll get you up and running. Use
sitebuilder.py -h from the command line for options.
I've customized deployment steps to push directly to an s3 bucket configured to serve my site. It works for me, but YMMV. This area of the code is probably the least generalizeable section, so caveat emptor.

sitebuilder.py command is installed in the package and is the entry point into the entire system
To serve the website locally (optionally in
$ ./sitebuilder.py serve --debug * Running on http://127.0.0.1:8000/ * Restarting with reloader
This is useful when you want to see changes without having to rebuild the whole site.
To build the static website:
$ sitebuilder.py build
Generated HTML files and assets will go to the
To deploy the website
$ sitebuilder.py deploy
There's also a command for creating a post:
$ sitebuilder.py new --title="My title" $ Created pages/drafts/my-title.md $ cat pages/drafts/my-title.md title: My title date: 2013-04-22 published: False type: post tags:
