    Honestly, I've had a great experience with Hakyll for static site generation. There's a bit of a learning curve to effectively use the library/framework, but in my opinion the learning curve is much lower than Yesod/Fay. If all you need is to build static website pages, I'd suggest Hakyll.

  • I did a thing : Hakyll with Internationalization;
    2 projects | /r/haskell | 13 Nov 2021
    Hi there. A friend of mine wanted to publish a blog/site at both French and English. I told him about static generators and Hakyll from u/jaspervdj but the internationalization piece was missing. Of course there are other generators with internationalization but... Well here is one for Hakyll. * Generator source code * Use case and its source code --- If it already exists, ‏‏‎ please hide that fact from me. If not and if you enjoy it, please use it at will. There is a public docker image at registry.gitlab.com/swi18ng/swi18ng:latest for quick testing purpose if needs be (don't forget to add -e LANG=C.UTF8 if you use some special characters). And of course, don't hesitate to give me some feedback. This would be greatly appreciated! > P.

    This info is relevant because Hakyll application requires to be complied before it generates the pages, and the compilation process of Haskell is a pretty expensive (computationally saying). Although, the executable is incredible fast, due to great work made by the compiler. This processing cost will be discussed soon.

    Btw there is a static page generator utilizing pandoc directly: hakyll[1]. Since it's configuration is done via haskell source code file, you need to be willing to learn a bit of haskell though.
