  • eleventy 🕚⚡️

    A simpler site generator. Transforms a directory of templates (of varying types) into HTML.

  • The only time I have any need for a project like this in recent years is for hobby projects, but I've been quite fond of the static site generator approach, especially using Eleventy ( https://www.11ty.dev/ ), hosted any-old-where, though Netlify certainly makes it very easy.

  • contentlayer

    Contentlayer turns your content into data - making it super easy to import MD(X) and CMS content in your app

  • For my personal website, I use Next and Contentlayer since I prefer to write my content as markdown files. I then host it using vercel's free tier.

  • Hugo

    The world’s fastest framework for building websites.

  • Parsedown

    Better Markdown Parser in PHP

  • ng-journal-insurance-portal

  • Publii

    The most intuitive Static Site CMS designed for SEO-optimized and privacy-focused websites.

  • I’m trying out Publii (https://getpublii.com/). It’s an app on your computer that gives a nice interface for building pages and managing content. Supports themes, syncing and uploading to your host (I’m using AWS S3 + Cloudfront for the moment), has a few extensions, more I can’t remember rn. Totally free and open source.

  • astro

    The web framework for content-driven websites. ⭐️ Star to support our work!

  • next feels like overkill for a content site. I'd look at astro.build and whatever CMS floats your boat.

  • neon

    Neon: Serverless Postgres. We separated storage and compute to offer autoscaling, code-like database branching, and scale to zero.

  • I use my blog as an excuse to play around with new stuff too. There’s some Rust and Neon powering a few random things on my blog like talking to Spotify’s API and blog view counts. It’s arguable mot the most efficient way of doing things (SSR with would suffice), but I that’s what makes me excited to still tinker with my blog and add new things when I can. Astro makes it easy and straightforward while being able to bring your framework gives you the best of all worlds too!
