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!

lektor offers some of this functionality. editing is done locally through a browser UI, but there may be a way to host the interface. deployments are easy.

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.
