What are the weirdest CMS you've seen used to host content?
6 projects | reddit.com/r/web_design | 12 May 2022
As it turns out VSCode can be insanely powerful if one sets it up carefully. The Front Matter extension can be enough in itself to manage a blog. The power tools extension can do useful stuff, like it can copy the formatted path of a changed image to clipboard which allows the client to just copy an image to a folder and press ctrl+v anywhere in a markdown file to paste the image there in markdown format. VSCode snippets in tandem with svelte components can do complex and easily usable stuff, and of course there can be simple buttons in vs code for example to build the static site and deploy it to their server.
Freelancers, who are the customers of static websites?

In the case of Hugo, for example, you can also use https://frontmatter.codes if you want to make content creation and management a bit more convenient. For other generators there will probably be similar tools.

There is also this project. https://frontmatter.codes/ which isn't the same as Cloud Cannon in terms of feature parity, but does provide a good set of tools for managing Content, Media and Data.

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.
Ask HN: Share Your Personal Site
I'm using Zola SSG (https://github.com/getzola/zola) and hosted on GitHub Pages. I write about Regular Expressions, CLI one-liners, Scripting Languages, Vim, self-publishing, etc.
I try to keep it simple, HTML, Sass (but really just vanilla CSS), and no JS. I generate the site with Zola (https://www.getzola.org/), which has been fantastic. Nothing fancy here, probably write a post once a year, but I have fun doing so.

Supposedly, Zola was built in response to the deficiencies of Go templating. Having dipped my toe into the Go pool, I am tempted to agree.
