  • mataroa

    Naked blogging platform

    Same for me, too.

    I honestly love https://mataroa.blog it ended my paralysis for searching a blog platform, and every page is bog standard HTML. It accepts Markdown, plus it has its own anonymous analytics, so it's nice.

  • Hugo

    The world’s fastest framework for building websites.

    I suggest hugo: https://gohugo.io/

    Generates a completely static website from MD (and other formats) files; also handles themes (including a lot of them rendering well on mobile), and different types of content - posts, articles, etc. - depending on the theme.

    It's open source and, being completely static, cheap as fuck to self host.

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • astro

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

    I currently use Hugo for my personal website, but if I were to start from scratch today, I think I would give Astro a try. https://astro.build/
