Run locally and upload static pages to web hosting

What are your preferred ways to run Ghost locally and upload statically exported pages to web hosting?

My mind spills out the following:

Write a script that overwrites everything online and schedule it.


curl export-url-local
curl import-url-online
rsync -avP --delete content/ remote-server:~/content

I don’t like this.

May I ask, why do you don’t like this?

After investigations into multiple Ghost-based sites I realize serverside performance issues, mainly TTFB.
I suspect, the kind of building up a site from a template, done by NodeJS isn’t enough efficient.
So my way here would be, as I do it since years with Wordpress, to develop locally and push static files to server, which handles flat HTML.

I’m using gssg (ghost static site generator) these days. I used buster before that. They’re a bit finicky, but mostly work.

I have a custom script to do the things gssg misses.
