I don't want to maintain my emacs-based blog engine anymore. Any opinions on static site generators?
@federicomena 😱 has been a lot of years with your emacs-based blog!
I use Jekyll, jus because is the one that GitHub pages provides by default. It's nice to write in markdown and have the code blocks rendered with github-markdown style.
Also, https://gohugo.io/, I haven't tried, but seems to be nice too.
@erich I have been procrastinating *forever* on adding things like categories, single-article posts, drafts... but I don't want to reinvent that wheel anymore. Was fun for a while, though :)
(... and I really really want syntax highlighting for code examples.)
@federicomena I'm very happy with Pelican.
The pages/articles are Markdown (can also do reStructuredText) in a git repo, and on the server I have a post-receive hook which rebuilds the website automatically.
@federicomena there's even a Rust one - Cobalt 😁

@federicomena Few years ago, I started to convert my #Wordpress blog to #Nikola. It was quite fun and #RST is really cool as there is a single implementation. But it seems that #Mardown won the war. So, when I recently have to select a new static generator again, I give #Hugo a try. I find it really interesting as it is really agnostic about the site it generates, while #Pelican and #Nikola are tainted by #blog concepts.
@guyou Oh, that's interesting. I am having some trouble with Pelican, as I *think* it only supports a single blog in a site, and I need more than one.
