I've decided to switch back to using pure Python for my website. Hy is a cool idea, but because it's still Python, it lacks the computational elegance of Lisp without the syntactical elegance of Python. Plus, writing anything in Hy requires cross-referencing both Python and Hy documentation, especially when strange syntax errors appear.

The maintained version of the website is now here

Trees' Street

This is the source code for my personal website and blog. It's written using Flask in Hy, a Lisp which compiles to Python AST, thence to Python bytecode. Yep, plain old Flask, written in a Lisp! Neat, huh?


If, for some reason, you wish to run this website locally, first make sure you have the requirements in requirements.txt. At the time of writing, the version of Hy used is not in PyPI; in order to get it, you will have to pull it from the git repository like so: pip install git+ This should be correct in the requirements file. Then, run source setup-flask then flask run. All together:

git clone
cd hy-website
pip install -r requirements.txt
source setup-flask
flask run


In addition to being a Flask app, the simplicity of this website makes it a logical choice for static generation. As such, URL conventions are adjusted to allow frozen-flask to generate a static version. That's why freeze.hy is for. To generate a static version, one would simply run:

git clone
cd hy-website
pip install -r requirements.txt
hy freeze.hy

The resultant files are in the new build directory.
