As I continue to recommend Blogofile to all who ask, it's hard not to notice that development seems to have stopped. Per https://github.com/EnigmaCurry/blogofile/commits/plugins
the last commit appears to be 11 months ago. According to discussions at Pycon, apparently some folks are using the development version of 0.8, but things are where they're at.
The situation now is that people ask about site generators all the time, more active solutions like Mynt (http://mynt.mirroredwhite.com/
), which AFAICT was written because the author couldn't be bothered to read the docs for Blogofile (source: http://www.reddit.com/r/Python/comments/ovdkp/mynt_a_static_blog_generator/c3kgb7f
), and of course Jekyll and variants are pulling ahead, none of which do things the way I'd like them to.
So it's 11 months since project activity, it's time to make a choice:
1. Announce that Blogofile is stalled, and needs a new maintainer, and that the project is open to such.
2. Announce / imply that Blogofile is stalled, but is not open to a new maintainer, in which case it's time for a fork.
3. Option 1 or 2, except there's really nobody interested in taking over, in which case I have to start recommending something else.
4. Announce that Blogofile is not dead, here's the roadmap for 0.8, then it happens.
Otherwise, other static generators are quickly steamrolling over whatever progress Blogofile has made.
The most critical thing would be to release 0.8. I also think it would be an extremely good idea to drop the 3to2 dependency and just publish as a 2.6/3.3 compatible source base, which is now very straightforward and that's where things are going: see https://github.com/mitsuhiko/python-modernize
