Static website builder for a completely non technical person
3 projects | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 11 Aug 2022
https://getpelican.com/, can't get easier than that.
Should I use Ghost or Hugo for a blog ?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 11 Aug 2022
I just switched from Ghost to Pelican (a static site generator) to create my own website. Among the elements that convinced me to change is the portability of the data that gives you to use a static site generator and write everything in Markdown. They are simple text files and I can edit them as I please (also offline). Another great thing is that Pelican adapts according to the tags and categories I use.
Comparing Static and Dynamic Websites

who is self-hosting a static website and what are you using to build it?
8 projects | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 11 Jun 2022
I do (The Wombelix Post) and use Pelican with a customized Theme and a few Plugins. Took me initially some time to setup and adjust based on my needs but works great since then :)

What do you use for public publishing your Zettlekasten?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/Zettelkasten | 9 Jul 2021
I think pelican (https://getpelican.com/) is a little bit more beginner friendly. It still requires some technical knowledge though.
Static site generators to watch in 2021
25 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 7 Jun 2021
For me it was the license that made me not pick it: https://github.com/getpelican/pelican/issues/1397.
A while ago I was picking a new SSG and I would have preferred something written in Python so I can hack on it more easily. I ended up moving on because of the license.
I am now very happily using Hugo.
Ask HN: What CMS are you using in 2022?
11 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 11 Jul 2022
As someone who dabbled in PHP but is mostly a self-taught JS hobbyist dev, I have been using and loving Directus (https://directus.io) since around the time they switched to Node. Development velocity is exceptional with new features released every couple of weeks and bugfixes/enhancements even more frequent, the community and core team is fantastic, and I like the fact that if I ever decide to switch to another CMS for some reason, there's no real import/export process, I just delete the directus_tables in my database, and done.
Pocketbase (https://pocketbase.io/) piqued my interest after seeing it here and on ProductHunt, but I don't think it would be the right call for a client before it hits a stable release.
I also very much enjoyed OctoberCMS (although it has its quirks), but there was a fairly acrimonious split in the community there, and OctoberCMS is no longer open source, and I haven't used the fork (WinterCMS: https://wintercms.com/)
I enjoyed using Apostrophe (https://apostrophecms.com/) for a while, but ultimately I felt like I was doing a lot of stuff in a way that didn't come naturally to me, and although Mongo seems a logical choice when you look at Apostrophe's page model, it worried me a bit that the data would not be easy to move if I ever wanted to.
Any suggestions for a "client-oriented" CMS? More info into the post.

I'm biased, but it might be worth taking a look at Winter CMS. It's built on Laravel, so you get everything you would with Laravel but it also has some pretty powerful features on top of what you get out of the box with Laravel. Its plugin system and extensibility is also second to none. It's different from a few of the other options though in that you don't add it to an existing project, you build your projects from the start in it.
What are the weirdest CMS you've seen used to host content?
6 projects | reddit.com/r/web_design | 12 May 2022
Winter CMS is an open source fork of OctoberCMS. They've just put Laravel 9 support in place as well.
Is there a best framework or software to develop websites on for the future?
1 project | reddit.com/r/webdev | 29 Mar 2022
If you're looking at October I'd give Winter a look too (https://wintercms.com), October is no longer open source and Winter is the open source fork of October. (Disclaimer: I'm the lead maintainer for Winter CMS)

I hate WordPress. What are modern CMS that natively support custom post types?
