Malt is a static website generator built in Python. It transforms a directory of text files into a WordPress-style website with support for pages, posts, and custom post types.

  • Malt is extensible. It has builtin support for source files written in Markdown and Syntex, but can be extended via plugins to support any similar text-to-html format.

  • Malt is flexible. By default it produces sites with page-relative links that can be viewed locally without any need for a web server (ideal for distributing project documentation in html format), but it can easily produce sites with resource or directory-style urls.

  • Malt is free and open source. All of Malt's code has been placed in the public domain.

  • The default theme bundled with Malt incorporates icons from the Font Awesome collection by Dave Gandy. These icons and their accompanying CSS files are released under a mixed MIT and Open Font license.
