    A fast static site generator in a single binary with everything built-in. https://www.getzola.org

    Personally, I use a SSG called Zola for my personal blog and several other small sites. I was using Netlify for hosting, which was great, but moved over to Cloudflare pages (which is also great) as they use 100% renewable electricity. I've not tried other generators, but I hear good things about Hugo and 11ty.
