After getting annoyed by the subtle handcuffs of the various CMS and blog platforms out there, I decided I would build something myself. Since a blog is generally text and images, I figured a static site would be great. I wanted something that I could dynamically rebuild and modify on a whim. I ended up with blogpy.
blogpy is a simple static blog generator written in python, with content formatted with markdown. After a code cleaning session (more needed!), I decided to make blogpy public. You can check out the blogpy repo on github: blogpy. Use it, abuse it, improve it (pull requests welcome)!
