    Project mention: Shite: The little static shite generator from shell | | 2022-07-24

    From the readme:

    > I accidentally restarted blogging after a long haitus. Before I could get words into the cloud, I muddled about with "modern" Static Site Generators. Because WordPress is so last century (or so I told myself). Then I got annoyed by the SSG Jamstack bespoke templating building etc. magic.

    I felt the same way when I restarted my blog so I went a similar route, but... lazier. I'm using pandoc with some shell scripts gluing it all together and it works.. pretty well actually.
