There's Nikola which isn't very well known, but I've found it easy to theme and customize heavily.

And Lektor which seems promising and allows defining custom models for posts (to have different metadata, templates, etc depending on the type of post).

Not exactly python, but 11ty uses nunjucks, a port of jinja2 to javascript, so should feel very familiar. I have been able to do some cool things with it.

This is the only one I know github.com/getpelican/pelican but I'm sure if you search in google static site generator python there must be a few.

I was in the same boat, switched to Pelican recently and never been happier! Its the python equivalent of ruby's jekyll.
