I'll second Nikola (full disclosure: not affiliated)

It's easy to get started and the documentation is pretty good. Mako (the 
themeing language) is good to know as it, or something extremely 
similar, is used elsewhere. And Nikola is python!

I found the tutorial at to be 
quite helpful my first time but it seems to be down at the moment

Another generator I've used and found quite good is Hakyll. Designed 
after Jakyll but in Haskell instead. My Haskell isn't great however so 
if I needed to add some new functionality it would often take a long 
time (which isn't always ideal)
