An alternative to static site generators
Up until a week ago this site was created with the help of the static site generator Hugo. That worked decently for a year or so, but every time I would come back to write something after a long break I'd need to reread the docs to do absolutely anything.
I'd like to offer my alternative to Hugo, Jekyll, et al. It's called, HTML.
All my content is written in plain html. I use a bash script that takes two inputs: file name and title, and generates a new file based on a little HTML template.
Styling is a done with a single CSS file.
Some downsides, maybe?
- HTML takes slightly longer to write than markdown. Although maybe not since I'm always forgetting markdown syntax.
- Need to manually add a link to the post in index.html. Could probably automate this at some point.
We'll see how long this lasts.
