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
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.

rest2web (0.5.0~beta~svn-r210-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream commit.
- now restindex/uservalues can appear within comments at the start of the
document, but with restrictions: they cannot appear on a line starting
with two dots, and no comments may follow. Also comments appearing
before the restindex stanza are not visibile (as HTML comments) in the
final output. This addresses #382717 but does not really close it yet,
thus I'll tag it fixed.
* Made some changes to follow pysupport development.
