Static Site Generators - Beauty in Simplicity
Posted on February 14, 2020 | 2 minute read
What about today? Today I build simple websites using static site generators. In fact this site itself was written using Hugo, a super fast and robust static site generator written in GoLang. A static site generator is a tool that takes a folder of static content, blog articles written in markdown, images, Sass files, etc and converts them into flat HTML content. They can even do things like automagically crop, resize and thumbnail your photos for different display sizes.
Even better, store your site in a GitHub repo and use a service like Render to host your site, from a CDN for fast loading, for FREE.
The world of programming has truly come a long way! And boy has it gotten good!
