Thanks! The game here is written in Inform7, and it was so difficult to make progress that it took me three years on and off to finish the game. So if you do it that way, beware :)

I'm currently learning https://www.getzola.org/.
It's more manual than idy like but it's gonna be for a small personal and work website so I don't mind much.
It's super fast.
Doesn't seem to fit your use casr but still.
My Journey Away from the JAMstack

Honestly, frontend development especially with all these crowded frameworks and libraries always confused me so pardon my ignorance, which is why in a project I’m working on right now I’m trying not to use js, instead I’m using egui 
Zola is a static site generator and it’s crazy fast, using one binary only , also there’s Blades , same concept but supposedly faster, never tried it though.

Great project. But honestly, I reached to the point of “less JS” or even no js is better for developers and also users. I’m currently migrating my old blog to a new one that gets generated by Zola , and even my main portfolio site, which funnily enough I newly made it with React/Gatsby, but I’m redoing it again with Zola because of the performance gap is just unmatched, not to mention I personally sometimes browse the web with js disabled so if a website is completely non-functional or doesn’t even load because of that is a deal breaker. My old site years ago used to use jquery and I was annoyed by it to some degree, trying react and the likes was a nightmare!

Documentation generators and custom syntax highlighting
5 projects | /r/ProgrammingLanguages | 5 May 2023
Zola (https://www.getzola.org/) can generate from markdown-ish files nice looking documentation websites (and also RSS feeds), it uses syntect (https://github.com/trishume/syntect) which supports sublime syntax highlight files. For github readme I don't have a solution besides using a png.

Ask HN: What simple web apps do you wish existed? Seeking ideas for sample apps

This one smells a bit like something I run into at work sometimes, where a non-technical person makes a technical decision and the technical people don't sufficiently challenge it.
If you're trying to convert markdown documents into webpages, the most likely output format would surely be HTML, or perhaps something custom to the site like MediaWiki markup.
It's totally possible that a site would allow for new documents to be uploaded in a JSON format, but the format would have to be specified (e.g. which keys are used for the post body and subject) - so "whatever you deem best" is unlikely to work, it would need to be "whatever my webhost expects, which is documented -here-"
I'm happy to be wrong here, and zainhoda's markdown to JSONified HTML is interesting regardless - but I suspect you really wanted a markdown to HTML converter. ex: https://markdowntohtml.com/ or something more extreme like a static site generator: https://www.getzola.org/
Ask HN: Which Python or Rust-based static site generators to use as of 2023?

I made a simple static website to host my mixes in FLAC for free.
3 projects | /r/DJs | 17 Jan 2023
I'm using Cloudflare R2 object storage for the FLAC files, which is free for < 10 GB of storage. They don't charge for bandwidth, only API calls, which you won't pay unless you're getting millions of visitors. The web pages are hosted for free with Vercel and made with the Zola static site generator. So all I have to pay for is the domain name.
