Nikola v7.8.3 is out (emergency bugfix release)

On behalf of the Nikola team, I am pleased to announce the immediate availability of Nikola v7.8.3. This is an emergency bugfix release, which fixes a bug that prevented nikola new_page from working. There has also been a minor change to post sorting order (won’t affect most sites). The wheel packages have also been fixed (they now exist for Python 2 and 3, with correct doit versioning).

What is Nikola?

Nikola is a static site and blog generator, written in Python. It can use Mako and Jinja2 templates, and input in many popular markup formats, such as reStructuredText and Markdown — and can even turn Jupyter (IPython) Notebooks into blog posts! It also supports image galleries, and is multilingual. Nikola is flexible, and page builds are extremely fast, courtesy of doit (which is rebuilding only what has been changed).

Find out more at the website:


Install using pip install Nikola or download tarballs on GitHub and PyPI.
