Chronological content (e.g., articles, blog posts) as well as static pages
Integration with external services
Site themes (created using Jinja2 templates)
Publication of articles in multiple languages
Generation of Atom and RSS feeds
Code syntax highlighting via Pygments
Import existing content from WordPress, Dotclear, or RSS feeds
Fast rebuild times due to content caching and selective output writing
