ReproZip can capture any software environment. That can be a web server,
that is serving a website (possibly dynamic), for example in the Django
case. Nikola is *not* a web server, it is a program that generates static
files initially, and those files will later be served to user through the
use of a web server.

Every website necessarily has a web server. If all the content is in static
files without any kind of database or dynamic aspect to it (like files
generated by Nikola), preservation is a lot easier, since you can just zip
up those files. Is this your use case?
