    📚 A component development workflow for static websites. (by CloudCannon)

    As its GitHub home page explains, the purpose of Bookshop is to enable the building of components in the various templating languages used by SSGs. The result meshes seamlessly with CloudCannon. At launch, Bookshop supported the Ruby-based Jekyll and JavaScript-based Eleventy SSGs. It now also supports the Go-based Hugo, with support for more platforms in the works.

  • Hugo

    The world’s fastest framework for building websites.

    For developers who build sites with the Hugo static site generator (SSG), this particular aspect of commercial website development can be especially perplexing. You know how to give prospective clients the snazzy features that have caught their eyes elsewhere, but making it possible for them to make non-destructive changes later — e.g., editing a product description, contact information, or a call-to-action (CTA) banner — can get hairy in a hurry.
