I'm building a personal website. Should I bother doing it in Python or just use a template?
8 projects | reddit.com/r/Python | 13 Jul 2022
I tend to prefer static site generators for this kind of use case. I use Nikola, which is written in and based on Python. You should be able to pick whatever html5up template you like and turn it into a Nikola template, too.

I switched to Nikola recently: https://getnikola.com/
Reads every kind of plaintext format, but will also just publish a Jupyter notebook which means you can do drag and drop image and graph inlining which makes everything so much simpler (and thus makes me more likely to keep it up).

I know you say you're comfortable with your workflow, but just wanted to throw out that if you're not dependent on Jekyll, and are simply looking for the best way to create a static site/blog from org-mode files, you could consider Nikola as an alternative. It has an excellent org-mode plugin which would likely solve your complication.

I use GitHub pages for hosting which leverages Jekyll for dynamic page generation. I originally used this theme, but it doesn't look like I can find it via the jekyllthemes site anymore... I took some design inspiration for the site from this blog actually, but heavily modified it from there. Particles.js is used for the floaty red circles. Font Awesome for the various iconography you see throughout.
