Generate HTML page with Python

This is a script that I made to quickly generate a HTML page for this website using a specific template. It uses the Dominate library to create the HTML page. Download it here: Download button

title_text = str(input("Enter title of page: ").strip())
doc = dominate.document(title=title_text)

navigations = input("Enter navigation links comma separated by names (link1,name1 link2,name2 ...): ").strip()
navlist = navigations.split(' ')

subimgleft = input('Enter the image location of the left sub img: ').strip()
subimgright = input('Enter the image location of the right sub img: (enter for the same as left)').strip()
if (len(subimgright) <= 0):
    subimgright = subimgleft

add_imgs = input("Do you want to add an image gallery? (y/n) : ") == 'y'
if (add_imgs):
    imgs = []
    imgs = glob.glob(IMAGE_DIRECTORY + input("Enter the folder that contains the images for the gallery : ").strip() + "/*.jpg")
    print("imgs are: ")
    for i in range(len(imgs)):
        ind = len(imgs[i])-len(IMAGE_DIRECTORY)
        imgs[i] = imgs[i][-ind:]
