I've finished creating a static website/blog creation/management tool in Python called BiaWeb.

It runs from the command line and is a fully interactive application. The generated website is fully static HTML but it also features a CGI script for providing a basic search engine. It also generates an RSS feed.

The website generated by this application is similar to the reviews section of this site with a few additional enhancements, so you should have a good idea of how it works.

More details and download in the BiaWeb home page. BiaWeb is also on gitorious.

  2. Ray, thanks. If you'd like to test it out, just download the snapshot source from the software page and let me have your feedback.

    It's not pretty but it does the job. Also the output it generates is similar to the "reviews" page on my site. So you should have a good idea of what to expect.

    The reviews site was created using another script which I had created earlier, but that was non-interactive and didn't use databases. This one is more user-friendly.

  3. Oh great! Glad to see so many open source contributions from you, Hari. If I ever build a static website of my own, I'll keep this in mind. :)

  4. Thanks Sudipta. I tend to write code only when I need something and if it is something worth sharing, I do so. :biggrin:
