Super simple, totally awesome, brute force static site generator for

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.

About this fork

This is a work in progress containing many of the pull requests made to the
original buster repo (which unfortunately has been abandoned by its author).

It includes most of the changes by

  • skosch
  • petemichel77
  • Misiur
  • Jeongseok Son
  • raccoony
  • leftofnull
  • alokard

It should also work with static pages (e.g. about, tag/..., etc.).

There may well be issues still, especially around Windows compatibility; I'm
happy to merge your PRs.


With pip installed, simply run

pip install git+

You could also just clone the source and use the file directly.

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.
