Getting started


First install nefelibata using a virtual environment:

$ python -m venv venv
$ source venv/bin/activate
$ pip install nefelibata

This will add a program called nb to your path.

If you’re impatient, you can run:

$ nb init blog
$ cd blog
$ nb build
$ nb preview

And open http://localhost:8000/ to see your weblog. Read below for details.

Creating the weblog directory

Once you have installed nefelibata you should initialize a directory that will hold your content:

$ nb init blog
$ ls blog
nefelibata.yaml  posts/  templates/

Here, the file nefelibata.yaml stores the configuration for your weblog. The posts/ directory will contain your posts, and should already have a directory called first/ with an initial post. The templates/ directory has the templates for generating your blog and its Atom feed. Multiple themes are supported, but there’s currently only one called “pure-blog”, based on Pure.css.
