    Generate a static site from ghost and deploy using a CI

    If you don‘t have dynamic content like a Comment section on your page, you could generate a Static Website from Ghost using this: https://github.com/Fried-Chicken/ghost-static-site-generator

  • Pelican

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

    I just switched from Ghost to Pelican (a static site generator) to create my own website. Among the elements that convinced me to change is the portability of the data that gives you to use a static site generator and write everything in Markdown. They are simple text files and I can edit them as I please (also offline). Another great thing is that Pelican adapts according to the tags and categories I use.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support. Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!
