Static Site Generators

Backstory: I decided to crowdsource static site generator recommendations, so the following are actual real world suggested-to-me results. I then took those and sorted them by language/server and, just for a decent relative metric, their Github Watcher count. If you want a heap of other projects (including other languages like Haskell and Python) Nanoc has the mother of all site generator lists. If you recommend another one, by all means add a comment.

Easystatic - a simple static site generator

It uses Markdown It for web pages, EJS and Postcss for site layout, and Browsersync as a development server with "live editing" and testing your site on all connected devices. Also it can scaffold the basic site layout for you (based on Material Design Lite).

Hey all I wrote a static site generator and I am looking for some constructive criticism or and feature suggestions. If anyone is interested in reviewing the project I would really appreciate it.

The project is called Muleify and it is hosted on Github and available on NPM. It is open source with MPL-2.0 incense.

I think it is rather unique since it requires almost zero configuration.
