Manticore 1.0 is released!

Manticore is a simple, minimal static site generator in Python. It's free and open source, and I would appreciate feedback.

This is my first contribution to open source, looking to make many more. Forks and pull requests, improvements on the codebase are all welcome!

Static site generator in python


A simple, minimal static site generator in Python.

Getting Started

  • Create a virtual environment - virtualenv venv
  • Run pip install -r requirements.txt
  • Add posts in markdown format in the content folder
    • In content/resume for resume.
    • In content/default for blog posts.
  • Check commands with python --help
Usage: [OPTIONS]

  -d, --default TEXT  Generate the default blog template
  -r, --resume TEXT   Generate a resume template
  --help              Show this message and exit.
  • E.g. To generate a blog, Type python --default default

    • An output folder will be created with the markdown files in content/default
    • The directory structure in the output folder

The process is similar but a little easier for generating a resume since it only creates one page.


  • Python 3.6 or higher.


Deployment solutions are currently being worked on. Deployment with Netlify CLI could be available in upcoming releases.
