Starting a blog about detective TTRPGs. What platform should I choose?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/rpg | 22 Jun 2022
While WordPress is the obvious way to go, WordPress can turn into sort of a pain in the ass over the long term. I’m planning on turning my decaying blogs into static generated sites. You might just start with one of those, such as Jekyll.
How I fixed the feed on my website
1 project | dev.to | 20 Jun 2022
I use a liquid template in Jekyll to generate my feed. I added some of the builtin filter functions to strip excess whitespace (strip) and to escape the characters (xml_escape) to be XML-compliant.

Building an Ecommerce Website with Jekyll, Strapi, Snipcart and Tailwind CSS [1 of 5]
5 projects | dev.to | 17 Jun 2022
Jekyll is a simple blog-aware static site generator used for creating personal websites, blogs, documentation websites, corporate websites, etc. Jekyll was built with the Ruby programming language, and it uses the liquid templating engine as its templating engine. Jekyll is also the engine that powers GitHub pages.
Thinking of starting a Devlog for a new project. Thoughts?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/gamedev | 16 Jun 2022
If it works for you, I think it's a great idea to keep your ideas on track. When it comes to hosting a devlog, Discord seems like a odd choice to make regular "posts", I'd personally just setup a free blog or a Jekyll site and maybe using someting like Github Pages to host it for free. Just make sure you're not spending more time writing posts and updates than actually working on the game. The devlog should complement and motivate the game's development, not replace it!
Which programming languages would you suggest for this (presumably) not-so-complicated website idea?
1 project | reddit.com/r/AskProgrammers | 15 Jun 2022
Sounds like a semi-static website to me. Take a look at Jekyll, or any other static site generator, if you have a minute or ten. They allow you to put together and maintain a CMS-like setup with plain HTML, CSS or Markdown.

Can anyone recommend a good blogging platform?
3 projects | reddit.com/r/datascience | 19 May 2022
I use Jekyll, hosted on github Pages (for free). I find that it works extremely well for blogging code and math, as well as for creating a personal home page.

Why I built another static site generator: A love story
7 projects | dev.to | 19 Mar 2022
I have used a few static site generators over the years including Hugo, Jekyll, and Pelican to host my personal blog. And I have experimented with a few others including Lektor and Gatsby.
State of the Web: Static Site Generators
21 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 30 Jan 2022
Lektor might be worth a look: https://www.getlektor.com/
After creating a site you start a local server by executing "lektor run" in the local folder, then preview the site in your webbrowser. There you get a edit-button whivh opens a backend with which you can edit the website. From that backend you can hit an upload button which allows you to push the static site directly to a remote (e.g. via scp)

Show HN: Kit55, a Desktop Web Builder GUI – Jekyll, Next, Wordpress Alternative
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 27 Oct 2021
This somewhat reminds me of Lektor, which is a sort of front-end GUI application (really just website/page in front of a locally-run web server) that allows for folks to edit and post content as a static site generator and without needing a CLI. Lektor happens to be open source and based on python. This also reminds me of MovableType! Either way, I think we need more of these types of tools; both for techs and non-techs alike! Best of luck to the Kit55 folks!

TinaCMS: Tina is a toolkit for building visual editing into your site
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 25 Mar 2021
Shameless plug: If you want a static site generator with an admin UI I can recommend Lektor (https://www.getlektor.com/). You declare your data model and templates and Lektor serves an editing UI for you. There is a good video introduction by Armin Ronacher (original author) if you prefer to digest video content: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTWTCwuPdrU
Disclaimer: Occasionally I moonlight as a maintainer of Lektor.
