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.

Ask HN: How to build a light weight personal blog?
17 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 4 Jan 2022
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.
Static site generators to watch in 2021

I also know that there is also Python-based Lektor , however I found Nikola more intriguing than this one.
What framework or service do you use to build your programming language's documentation?
4 projects | reddit.com/r/ProgrammingLanguages | 5 Aug 2022
I use https://www.getzola.org/ + https://tailwindcss.com. In special the use of this plugin helps a lot (mean, you don't need to do styling for the markdown) https://tailwindcss.com/docs/typography-plugin.

The latest Zola needs a newer glibc: https://github.com/getzola/zola/issues/1713

Ask HN: What relatively new project/movement are you excited about?
4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 4 Aug 2022
Not really new but I'm all in self-hosting, decentralization, privacy and original web owned by individuals rather than big corp. I never manage to get drowned in any social media trends or platform.
I really like Zola https://www.getzola.org/

What is the best way to get a free domain and hosting for a blog?
3 projects | reddit.com/r/learnpython | 14 Jul 2022
I mean from personal experience, I just setup my website through github pages or gitlab pages. Then I just used a static site generator like hugo or zola. The domain is also taken care of too as its just your username appended to either one of the git sites io domain.

How to Create a Simple Blog?
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 19 Apr 2022
Yep, I would suggest to go indie instead of using a posting platform. Platforms die, limit your control and growth options.
Grab a domain ($1 sale at Namecheap atm), generate the site from simple markdown files using Zola (it's basically a better Hugo — if you've heard of it), and host at Netlify for free.
People who prefer a specific language would prefer a framework / generator in that language. Zola is a somewhat neutral option — since you didn't mention your preferences for the language.
Same with the services. I personally prefer Cloudflare as both registrar and hosting, but Netlify would be a bit more intuitive to start with.
Like you, I love clean blog layouts. Shouldn't be a problem if you have a CSS background, but there are themes at the Zola site if you are busy. Not all are great, but there are a couple of neat and clean ones.
P.S. At first I was a bit surprised to see such question here, but then realized that it's actually smart to ask HK — as most of the googleable content is affiliate crap.
