I spent a few days wanting to make a blog, and I went over many templates in Jekyll, Hugo and Bootstrap and I landed on Ghost.I very much like it’s look, it reminds of the “blogging site” /medium.com - exactly what I wanted to impersonate.
I found a few solutions online, such as:
- Elleventy https://ghost.org/changelog/eleventy/
- Gui https://fizzy.cc/ghost-static-generator/
- Ghost on Github Pages /github.com/paladini/ghost-on-github-pages
Which one should I even pick from those?? This is the hardest question… Is there a 5th one?
So, what’s used these days? What’s both:
- The most popular
- Well documented
What do you folks suggest? from what I understand it’s called a static site generator, yes?
I also have a side question, completely unrelated to this. I read a topic that I should consider buying a VM instead (got reccomended Digital Ocean droplets), and that that’s better than Github Pages. But, that’s paid though, yeah? So doesn’t that contradict the point of using Github Pages and generating a static website?
Thanks, and have a good day
