Why Static Websites?

Static websites are safer, use fewer resources, and avoid vendor and platform lock-in. You can read more about this in the Nikola Handbook_

What Can Nikola Do?

It has many features, but here are some of the nicer ones:

  • Blogs, with tags, feeds, archives, comments, etc.__
  • Themable_
  • Fast builds, thanks to doit_
  • Flexible, extensible via the dozens of available plugins_
  • Small codebase (programmers can understand all of Nikola core in a day)
  • reStructuredText_ or Markdown as input language (also Wiki, BBCode, Textile, and HTML)
  • Easy image galleries_ (just drop files in a folder!)
  • Syntax highlighting for almost any programming language or markup
  • Multilingual sites, translated to 50 languages.__
  • Doesn't reinvent wheels, leverages existing tools.
  • Python 3.5+ compatible.
