A quick Static Site Generator demo

How to an SSG

A Cat Barcamp presentation demo code thing.

Usage

$ virtualenv venv
$ source venv/bin/activate
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
$ python ssg.py <rst file> <jinja template file>

What is this?

ssg.py is a very simple static site (static page really) generator. Pass it a content.rst file and a template.jinja (or whatever you want to call your content and template files) and it produces an index.html file.

Included in this repo are the content files, the script, the template, the requirements file, and the produced index.html file from running the script.
