web site builder using ReStructured Text as basic content format

rest2web is a simple tool that lets you build your website from a single template (or as many as you want), and keep the contents in ReStructured Text (docutils; you can still keep pages in HTML if needed). The prefix "rest" does not in any way allude to the concept of "representational state transfer."

The tool provides a host of features, for example:

 * Automatically builds index pages and navigation links (sidebars and
 * Aids with the translation of the site to other languages.
 * Embedded code in templates for unlimited expressiveness.
 * Flexible macro system.
 * Uses relative links, so sites can be viewed from the filesystem.
 * Uses unicode internally.
 * Built-in gallery creator plugin.

Adding new pages is as easy as dropping a text file into the right folder; rest2web builds the new page and adds a link to it in the index (optionally with a description as well). Removing a page is just as easy: delete the file, and when you run rest2web again it removes the entry.
