Top 3 JavaScript Metalsmith Projects

  • GitHub repo Metalsmith

    An extremely simple, pluggable static site generator.

    Project mention: Why I built my own static site generator | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-14

    A static site generator I've been enjoying lately (and using for my blog) is Metalsmith: https://metalsmith.io/

    It feel like it's the best of both worlds, because it's simple to learn and customize, but there are plugins for the things you don't want to spend time writing yourself.

    For example, I'm using plugins to: check for broken links, generate an RSS feed, and run a test server with automatic reloading.

    But then I was able to easily add in my own code to handle relative links, generate Graphviz diagrams, and format dates.

    One other recommendation: I hated almost every template language I ran across (Hugo's, Liquid, Nunjucks, EJS), but I'm thrilled with the simplicity of Handlebars (https://handlebarsjs.com/), although it is a bit limiting and the "block helper with parameters" syntax is strange (perhaps an indicator that I'm trying to do too much in the templating language!).

  • GitHub repo gray-matter

  • GitHub repo staticman

    💪 User-generated content for Git-powered websites

    Project mention: Add A Comment System To A Jekyll Blog Using Staticman - 1 / 2 | dev.to | 2021-10-14

    Another possible solution to add dynamic content to a GitHub website is to use staticman. On the opposite of the previous solutions using external databases, staticman creates files in your repository, updating your website statically. It is free and open-source but not as straightforward to implement as disqus. The nice thing is that it will store all your comments in your git repository, so there is no risk of losing them.
