working on yet another static site generator: Dynamo
because all the others don't do what I want :>
- get MDX from directory structure, put as static index.html in the right build folder
- do themeing with react
- postcss for css transformations
- livereload for dev
it already does livereloading, postcss transformations and basic MDX parsing, all in one evening :D
@f0x oh, I am also writing one :D
I am using hexo currently, but it is imperfect and bloated in many ways.
What do you mean by "do theming with react"? Do you mean JSX?
@lowpolybrain ah yes I guess JSX is the right term. It gets rendered once into plain html in the build step. Indeed I want it all to be focused on progressive enhancement. So everything that could work without JS should work without JS
@f0x well next.js/gatsby built websites work just fine without js, but they produce tons of various bloat (as per my impression) and the pages load super-slowly without JS (well, compared to handcrafted websites - maybe because the assets reload overhead)
