Static Website Generators: Brief Introduction
Even in 2020 many developers are used to spinning up a WordPress (or similar software) for content websites. Until recently I’ve been one of these developers. I was willing to develop a website using technology to get done what I could get done without. My choice of framework wouldn’t have been WordPress, but at the end the result is the same: building a system to deliver what a static publishing software could have handled easily. In many cases it simply isn’t worth the effort to set up, configure and maintain a fully fledged content management system and store content in a database.
