You might perhaps look at Vampire. Vampire makes it easy to mix static
files as well as dynamically generated data within the same directory

For example, you might have a static index.html file but
in the same directory a dynamically generated file referenced using
the URL clients.html and which is generated entirely by code in a
content handler defined in the clients.py file. Alternatively, the
clients.html file could still exist, but be processed by code in the
clients.py file to fill in additional data.

Thus, you can have static files, files which are completely generated
by code, or static files which are processed by code on the fly to
generate a result.
