I decided to call it AYM CMS, with AYM standing for "Ain't Yo Momma's". Or maybe it stands for "All Your Mess". Or something else. Let's go Git on this one and just say it stands for whatever you want it to. It's short and quick to type, which seems most important...
What AYM CMS Gives You
Use the full power of Django templates to create your
static websites. From template inheritance and the default Django template tags and filters,
to adding your own custom tags/filters as well.
All images you place in the images/ directory will be thumbnailed
for free. It also loads all the images into a list and a dictionary
that are injected into the template context for rendering.
Add additional pages to your site by adding them to
PAGES_TO_RENDER list in the settings.py file.
This means you only render the templates you want,
and won't have partial templates hanging around your
You can add custom template rendering context in
both the settings.py and build.py files.
This opens up the doorway to easy customization
and time saving scripts that copy additional resources,
inject data from other sources, or pretty much anything
else your crafty mind can devise.
Let me know if there are any problems with AYM CMS.
It is intended to be a generic build script for creating
complex static websites, and I think that it is a very
sufficient solution for that problem (perhaps even a
good solution, if I wanted to stretch a bit).
I realize that fancy dynamic websites are all the rage
these days, but I think most of us still have a handful
of static websites we maintain (or put together as temporary
sites as we develop something more complex), and that AYM CMS
can serve that small but important niche admirably.
Let me know if you have any questions, complaints or comments.
