    I'm currently using Hexo, I write articles in markdown, commit them to a git repository and push them to Github. I then have a Github Action to bundle the static website and publish it on Github Pages, so I get free hosting 👌

  • Pelican

    Static site generator that supports Markdown and reST syntax. Powered by Python.

    I do (The Wombelix Post) and use Pelican with a customized Theme and a few Plugins. Took me initially some time to setup and adjust based on my needs but works great since then :)
