Wok is similar in concept to other static site generators, like Jekyll, Hyde, and nanoc, but different in a few ways, like a page/subpage category system, and a restricted focus of features. For example, instead of providing tools to generate RSS feeds directly, the tools that are needed to build a generic XML document are provided.

Wok offers:

  • Content and presentation are separated
  • Markdown, reStructuredText, and plain text renders
  • Jinja2-based templating system
  • Optional syntax highlighting via Pygments
  • Tagging and a hierarchical category system
  • Simple development server
  • Pagination support
  • Custom Python hooks that run during site generation
