Nikola v7.8.9 is out! (maintenance release)

On behalf of the Nikola team, I am pleased to announce the immediate availability of Nikola v7.8.9. This is a maintenance release for the v7 series.

Future releases in the v7 series are going to be small maintenance releases that include bugfixes only, as work on v8.0.0 is underway.

What is Nikola?

Nikola is a static site and blog generator, written in Python. It can use Mako and Jinja2 templates, and input in many popular markup formats, such as reStructuredText and Markdown — and can even turn Jupyter Notebooks into blog posts! It also supports image galleries, and is multilingual. Nikola is flexible, and page builds are extremely fast, courtesy of doit (which is rebuilding only what has been changed).

Find out more at the website:


Install using pip install Nikola or download tarballs on GitHub and PyPI.
