Why I built my own static site generator
11 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 14 Oct 2021
A static site generator I've been enjoying lately (and using for my blog) is Metalsmith: https://metalsmith.io/
It feel like it's the best of both worlds, because it's simple to learn and customize, but there are plugins for the things you don't want to spend time writing yourself.
For example, I'm using plugins to: check for broken links, generate an RSS feed, and run a test server with automatic reloading.
But then I was able to easily add in my own code to handle relative links, generate Graphviz diagrams, and format dates.
One other recommendation: I hated almost every template language I ran across (Hugo's, Liquid, Nunjucks, EJS), but I'm thrilled with the simplicity of Handlebars (https://handlebarsjs.com/), although it is a bit limiting and the "block helper with parameters" syntax is strange (perhaps an indicator that I'm trying to do too much in the templating language!).
