Full Featured Static Site Generator


What it is

A static site generator, aiming to support most features of WordPress and replace my old WP Blog.

Why? There’re dozens of Hexo-s

I created this project mainly because I can’t bear the slow loading speed of WordPress while there isn’t a full alternative static site generator. It’s probably just my personal project, but everyone can use it for free under the term of AGPL. Issues are also welcomed.

Since my goal is to replace my wp site, here are the current comparison between the site generated by Lumos and the original WordPress site (both in Duena Theme).

Lumos Site:


WordPress Site:



  • Requires Go 1.5+ and Glide package manager
  • Install the required packages using glide install then,
  • If you are on *nix, then will help you generate binaries for all platforms(Win, Linux, Darwin, Freebsd) with all archs(386, amd64, arm)
  • Else go build will always produce the executable.


Lumos is licensed under AGPL V3 (see doc/LICENSE). However, the website generated does not apply this license, meaning you can freely modify the output HTMLs.
