    Make small prototypes to test these implementations out, learn to use git (see: Working with Git and GameMaker Studio 2) sooner rather than later.

    Git installation is pretty straightforward; just head on to the site and install it according to your OS. It has no prerequisites. Make sure that you also have your Git Bash with the bundle. Git Bash is basically a terminal that is a bit personalized for Git. Windows users are recommended to use it over your cmd/powershell. Although the VSCode terminal is also very supportive.

  • Why I built my own static site generator | 2021-10-14
    I'm surprised nobody mentioned Hugo[0] yet.

    I write Markdown and commit to a git repo, then a web hook in Caddy pulls and builds the static site, anything I commit is up in a matter of seconds.

    I'd much rather spend what little time I have writing blogs to help people learn new things than write YASSG.

    Someone below linked to a site with over 400 SSGs.I think OPs "why" was really "because I wanted to", after having only tried Jekyll and Gatsby (apparently).


  • Component hydration with MDX in Next.js and Nx | 2021-10-12
    Markdown already gives a lot of flexibility in that you can use both, the Markdown syntax as well as plain HTML for links or embedded content. Many of the common static site generators such as Jekyll and Hugo (just to name a few), provide so-called "includes". These are basically snippets or macros that get executed during the static site generation and usually produce a piece of HTML that gets embedded into the existing markdown rendered content. Take for instance the following Hugo snippet which allows to embed an video into a page.
  • Publishing a Next.js app to Vercel with Nx | 2021-10-12
    In our specific context of developing our personal portfolio website or blog, we can totally rely on static site generators. Tools like Jekyll, Eleventy, Hugo and so on do a perfect job in taking a set of markdown files and transform them into static HTML files. These can be deployed to any web server that is able to statically serve files. Often these tools are very opinionated on how you should structure your site and where to place the markdown files. This can be a pro and cons, depending on your needs. While for a simple portfolio website you don't really need any kind of backend, as your site grows, you might find it useful to have access to simple cloud functions and persistent backend storage to create a more dynamic experience for your visitors.
  • Web Developer learning Golang | 2021-10-11
    Go is completely different than JS / TS as you're having to template out instead of script, I would suggest learning HUGO: From there I found it was easier to understand templating.

    If you have a large dataset, Hugo will choke your clients in memory.
  • Plugins in Rust: Diving into Dynamic Loading | | 2021-10-06
    I'm using Hugo with the theme PaperMod. You can take a look at the source code of the site here, it's pretty easy to get started if you look up a guide online. Also, I use Asciidoc instead of Markdown because it has more features built-in (customization, references, variables, etc).
  • Everything you need to know about Opensource Jamstack | 2021-10-06
    One of the most fastest and popular open-source SSGs is Hugo. It’s written in Go and has over 700 contributors listed on its core Github repository. It uses Go templates for its templates. A notable feature of the Hugo is its themes. It has over 300 website themes contributed and includes entries like developer portfolios, project documentation, and business websites. Community members also help to maintain the Hugo documentation website. It has a good-first-issue tag for issues to encourage new contributors to take them on. It provides a contribution guide for new contributors on its repository.
  • Introducing Bookshop: component-driven workflow for static websites | 2021-10-05
    HTML-based SSGs such as 11ty, Jekyll, and Hugo (support coming soon) benefit the most for Bookshop, as existing tooling doesn't support their native templating languages. However, there will still be benefits to using Bookshop with React or Vue-based SSGs, particularly if you want content editors to manage content visually on CloudCannon. Support for a Bookshop workflow with these SSGs will be coming later this year.
  • Introduction to Eleventy (11ty) | 2021-10-03
    Eleventy exists in an expansive ecosystem of SSGs, alongside Next.js, Jekyll, Hugo, Gatsby, and so many others. In fact, Eleventy might seem like an underdog among these. However, its frequency of updates and thriving community provide me with confidence in using it for my projects.
