Polo agonzalezro/polo (42)

polo is a static blog rendering tool created with Golang.

I'm happily using it on my blog:, which means that works fine :)

Yes, I know that there a lot of them out there but I just want mine to learn a little bit of Go coding.

Key features

  • Markdown support with Metadata parsing compatible with Jekyll, Pelican & others
  • Embedded daemon with autoregeneration of the htmls in case of any change on the input files.
  • Archive, tags, RSS & pages support
  • Disqus comments
  • Google Analytics support with just a change on the settings
  • Share this support as well
  • Cool & easy way to re-template it, check the documentation or my blog post about it
  • Quick!


  1. Download your version from Gobuild
  2. Get a JSON config from here
  3. Run polo -config [path_to_your_conf] [your_folder_with_mds] [your_output_path]

If the config is called config.json and it's on your current directory, you don't even need to specify it.

One more thing

You can run polo with the -daemon option which will start a server serving your generated content and in case that you change any of the files in the input folder it's going to autoregenerate the site.
