  • Pelican

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

    Project mention: Trying to work around a Jekyll site-building tutorial without using Jekyll | | 2023-01-29

    You can - you'd basically just create a python script that parses your HTML/CSS files and replaces strings with values from your YAML. However I wouldn't recommend that unless you're just using this as an opportunity to learn Python. If you want to standup a real site and you want to use python, I'd recommend a Python static site generator like Pelican or Nikola.

  • stencil

    We used for web components to be consumed by angular, AEM and react at a previous employer. It uses tsx/jsx. Components are easy to write and it has good documentation.

    I'm using Cloudflare R2 object storage for the FLAC files, which is free for < 10 GB of storage. They don't charge for bandwidth, only API calls, which you won't pay unless you're getting millions of visitors. The web pages are hosted for free with Vercel and made with the Zola static site generator. So all I have to pay for is the domain name.

    Project mention: Will anyone hire a 33 yo newbie? | | 2023-01-24

    Node is basically back-end Javascript. While powerful alone, almost exclusively you will use a back-end framework like Next.js or Gatsby when using React, and then maybe Nuxt or Gridsome in Vue.
