  • Component hydration with MDX in Next.js and Nx | 2021-10-12
    Markdown already gives a lot of flexibility in that you can use both, the Markdown syntax as well as plain HTML for links or embedded content. Many of the common static site generators such as Jekyll and Hugo (just to name a few), provide so-called "includes". These are basically snippets or macros that get executed during the static site generation and usually produce a piece of HTML that gets embedded into the existing markdown rendered content. Take for instance the following Hugo snippet which allows to embed an video into a page.
  • Publishing a Next.js app to Vercel with Nx | 2021-10-12
    In our specific context of developing our personal portfolio website or blog, we can totally rely on static site generators. Tools like Jekyll, Eleventy, Hugo and so on do a perfect job in taking a set of markdown files and transform them into static HTML files. These can be deployed to any web server that is able to statically serve files. Often these tools are very opinionated on how you should structure your site and where to place the markdown files. This can be a pro and cons, depending on your needs. While for a simple portfolio website you don't really need any kind of backend, as your site grows, you might find it useful to have access to simple cloud functions and persistent backend storage to create a more dynamic experience for your visitors.

    Another well-known open-source SSG is Jekyll with over 900 contributors on Github. It’s written in Ruby and is the engine that is used on Github Pages. It takes markdown files and liquid templates and converts them into static pages. Jekyll offers themes, plugins, and other integrations that you can use to enhance your generated site. It provides a good-first-issue issue tag for new contributors.
  • Introducing Bookshop: component-driven workflow for static websites | 2021-10-05
    HTML-based SSGs such as 11ty, Jekyll, and Hugo (support coming soon) benefit the most for Bookshop, as existing tooling doesn't support their native templating languages. However, there will still be benefits to using Bookshop with React or Vue-based SSGs, particularly if you want content editors to manage content visually on CloudCannon. Support for a Bookshop workflow with these SSGs will be coming later this year.
  • Introduction to Eleventy (11ty) | 2021-10-03
    Eleventy exists in an expansive ecosystem of SSGs, alongside Next.js, Jekyll, Hugo, Gatsby, and so many others. In fact, Eleventy might seem like an underdog among these. However, its frequency of updates and thriving community provide me with confidence in using it for my projects.
