Welcome to Holocron!

Holocron is an extendable static blog generator powered by the Force. Like others, it reads text files in various formats, renders them using templates and produces a ready-to-publish static website which could be served by Nginx or another web server. Unlike others, it tries to retrieve as many information as possible from the filesystem. Its core follows the KISS principle and any wheel reinventions were avoided during the process.

Feel the Force? Then use Holocron!

$ [sudo] pip install holocron
