which static site generator for a tech-intermediate - media artist who doesn't want another software in the way towards quick publishing of portfolio+blog+events+knowledge-base & media: audio/video/photo??
please advise in the replies
(+ please boost)
Thanks everyone for voting and presenting your various arguments pro and contra and pointing to other solutions than those in the poll.
The winner of the poll is Hugo, and Jekyll in the second place. I will need to decide between them. I'm still considering Pelican too... I also need to layout the whole website structure and then do some prototyping...
(plz don't rply @ everyone)
@luka I use PDFs... https://drive.google.com/file/d/15j0jHXKZxgbb0hYHyP_gfK_Ij_kCjAh8/view Adobe software is good at embedding video. I had trouble with Scribus.
@Circlenomic no solutions that are not libre & open source...
@luka Hugo, a bit of a learning curve, but once you get your head around it it becomes easy to handle and great for fx gitlab hosting.
@luka shortcodes + frontmatter + layouts + partials is a killer combo
@luka @rra When you say "detach" do you mean working without the web editor (GUI)? It generates static HTML and you can edit the content all with a text editor from the CLI if you prefer. You can also put in (most) straight HTML. The content data files are just Markdown formatted text files. The generate and deployment can be run from the CLI with one or two commands.
I have used Jekyll and Pelican. I prefer Pelican because it was easy to make a nice barebones site.. the directory structure is very simple and intuitive. It is written in python which for me is a plus as in principle i can modify it if need be..
@luka jekyl via github pages. It takes way less techknow than it sounds like.
@luka 11ty.io gets out of your way and is a lot simpler than other generators. There are solid starter repos if you don’t want to code from scratch.
@luka @esopriester there a different comparisons out in wild ... Nikola seems to be more generic in terms of input formats (rst, markdown, html, jupyter). The templating itself can be done via Jinja2... if you take github as baseline, pelican is still more popular (favs), but nikola got a shorter release cycle... as far as I am concerned nikola presents itself a little bit more modern and fresh 🙂
@luka good luck with the work!
