Welcome to Exhibition’s documentation!

Exhibition, a static site generator

Say it right:


So something like:

eggs hib ish’n


A static site generator


GPLv3 or later. See LICENSE for the actual text.

Why though?

I’d been using Hyde for a number of years, eventually that project stopped receiving updates. Hyde had very limited test coverage, many features that I didn’t personally use, and no Python 3 support. This combination made the prospect of maintaining Hyde daunting, so forking was out of the question.

In the end, I wrote Exhibition as other available static site generators would either require massively rewriting the sites I already had or weren’t flexible enough to generate the same URL structure.

What’s the status of this project?

There are tests, there’s some documentation, and I currently use it for a number of websites, including my personal blog.

Please feel free to add your site to the wiki if it uses Exhibition, but please make sure its safe for work and not covered in adverts.


I’m always looking for contributions, whether they be bug reports, bug fixes, feature requests, new features, or documentation. Also, feel free to open issues for support requests too - these are very helpful in showing me where documentation is required or needs improving.
