Nikola is Near

I managed to do some minor work today on Nikola, the static website generator used to generate ... well, this static website.

  • Implemented tags (including per-tag RSS feeds)
  • Simplified templates
  • Separated code and configuration.

The last one was the trickiest. And as a teaser, here is the full configuration file to create this site, except HTML bits for analytics, google custom search and whatever that would make no sense on other sites. I hope it's somewhat clear.

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-

# post_pages contains (wildcard, destination, template) tuples.
#
# The wildcard is used to generate a list of reSt source files (whatever/thing.txt)
# That fragment must have an associated metadata file (whatever/thing.meta),
# and opcionally translated files (example for spanish, with code "es"):
#     whatever/thing.txt.es and whatever/thing.meta.es
#
# From those files, a set of HTML fragment files will be generated:
# whatever/thing.html (and maybe whatever/thing.html.es)
#
# These files are combinated with the template to produce rendered
# pages, which will be placed at
# output / TRANSLATIONS[lang] / destination / pagename.html
#
# where "pagename" is specified in the metadata file.
#

post_pages = (
    ("posts/*.txt", "weblog/posts", "post.tmpl"),
    ("stories/*.txt", "stories", "post.tmpl"),
)

# What is the default language?

DEFAULT_LANG = "en"

# What languages do you have?
# If a specific post is not translated to a language, then the version
# in the default language will be shown instead.
# The format is {"translationcode" : "path/to/translation" }
# the path will be used as a prefix for the generated pages location

TRANSLATIONS = {
    "en": "",
    "es": "tr/es",
    }

# Data about this site
BLOG_TITLE = "Lateral Opinion"
BLOG_URL = "http://lateral.netmanagers.com.ar"
BLOG_EMAIL = "[email protected]"
BLOG_DESCRIPTION = "I write free software. I have an opinion on almost "\
    "everything. I write quickly. A weblog was inevitable."

# Paths for different autogenerated bits. These are combined with the translation
# paths.

# Final locations are:
# output / TRANSLATION[lang] / TAG_PATH / index.html (list of tags)
# output / TRANSLATION[lang] / TAG_PATH / tag.html (list of posts for a tag)
# output / TRANSLATION[lang] / TAG_PATH / tag.xml (RSS feed for a tag)
TAG_PATH = "categories"
# Final location is output / TRANSLATION[lang] / INDEX_PATH / index-*.html
INDEX_PATH = "weblog"
# Final locations for the archives are:
# output / TRANSLATION[lang] / ARCHIVE_PATH / archive.html
# output / TRANSLATION[lang] / ARCHIVE_PATH / YEAR / index.html
ARCHIVE_PATH = "weblog"
# Final locations are:
# output / TRANSLATION[lang] / RSS_PATH / rss.xml
RSS_PATH = "weblog"
