Static site generator for Ghost and Github

pip install buster==0.1.3



Super simple, Totally awesome, Brute force static site generator for Ghost.

Start with a clean, no commits Github repository.

Generate Static Pages. Preview. Deploy to Github Pages.

Warning! This project is a hack. It's not official. But it works for me.

The interface

setup [--gh-repo=<repo-url>]

      Creates a GIT repository inside static/ directory.

generate [--domain=<local-address>]

      Generates static pages from locally running Ghost instance.


      Preview what's generated on localhost:9000.


      Commits and deploys changes static files to Github repository.

add-domain <domain-name>

      Adds CNAME file with custom domain name as required by Github Pages.

Buster assumes you have static/ folder in your current directory (or creates one during setup command). You can specify custom directory path using [--dir=<path>] option to any of the above commands.

Don't forget to change your blog URL in config.js in Ghost.

The Installation

Installing Buster is easy with pip:

$ pip install buster

You'll then have the wonderful buster command available.

You could also clone the source and use the buster.py file directly.


  • wget: Use brew install wget to install wget on your Mac. Available by default on most linux distributions.
  • git: Use brew install git to install git on your Mac. sudo apt-get install git on ubuntu/debian

The following python packages would be installed automatically when installed via pip:

  • docopt: Creates beautiful command line interfaces easily.
  • GitPython: Python interface for GIT.
