Pelican is a package which generates a static blog (i.e., it renders the HTML files for your site when you tell it to and that's it). Written in Python. Uses Markdown to format posts prior to rendering into HTML. Comments are implemented with Disqus, so you don't have to fiddle with setting up shared hosting to store comments from readers. Can even import contents of Wordpress or Dotclear installs, or anything that has an RSS feed.
