Compile Flask/Jinja2 site into static html content

FSS, Flask-Static-Site
==============================================================================
Flask-Static-Site is designed to compile **Jinja2** templates into static web
webpages for static hosting like Amazon AWS S3 and Github Pages.

It also provides a simple development server via **Flask microframework**.


Installation
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Just `pip install fss`


Layout
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
By default, FSS works with files put as following layout:
```
*--- STATIC-SITE-ROOT    // The root folder of your static site.
  |
  +--- fss_settings.py   // Settings file for FSS
  |
  +--- static            // Static files of this site (Default)
  | +--- index.css
  | +--- index.js
  |
  +--- templates         // Jinja templates of this site (Default)
    +--- index.jinja
    +--- _temp.jinja
    +--- about
      +--- developer.jinja
      +--- designer.jinja
```
FSS compiles above project structure into following layout:
```
*--- STATIC-SITE-ROOT    // The root folder of your static site.
  |
  +--- fss_settings.py   // Settings file for FSS
  |
  +--- static             // Static files of this site
  | +--- index.css
  | +--- index.js
  |
  +--- templates          // Jinja templates of this site
  | +--- index.jinja
  | +--- _temp.jinja
  | +--- about
  |   +--- developer.jinja
  |   +--- designer.jinja
  |
  +--- index.html         // Static html files that static-website can access
  +--- about
    +--- developer.html
    +--- designer.html
```
FSS finds all **Jinja2 templates** in the `templates` folder, compiles it
into html pages, and puts built result at root directory. *(Templates named with a prefix "\_" won't be compiled)*.


Settings (fss_settings.py)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When running `fss` command, `fss` finds `fss_settings.py` in current working
directory. It loads the python module and update settings.
The default settings are:
```python
cwd = os.getcwd()
static_folder = 'static'
templates_folder = 'templates'
templates_context = {}
output_folder = '.'
flask_app_config = {}
```

- **static_folder**
    A folder where to find static files when running a flask dev server and compiling.
    By default, it uses `static` folder under current working directory.

- **templates_folder**
    A folder where to find Jinja2 templates when running a flask dev server and compiling.
    By default, it uses `templates` folder under current working directory.

- **templates_context**
    Context for rendering Jinja2 templates

- **output_folder**
    A folder here to put compiled result.
    By default, it put result in the current working directory.

- **flask_app_config**
    An extra dict used to setup Flask app.



Requirements
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We use **Flask**, **Jinja2**, and **Frozen-Flask**. Check `requirements.txt`.


Commands
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* `fss dev_server`
    Start a local development server at http://localhost:5000 via Flask.
