However, you don't need a lot to get things going: just a couple of rollup builds and a config file will get you most of the way there. Just some glue.

What follows is a bunch of rambling, half thought out thoughts on how I would probably go about this. Most of the stuff discussed here is stuff I've actually done or half done or am in the process of doing with varying degrees of success. It is something I'll be spending more time on in the future. There are other things I have done, want to do, or think would be a good idea that are not listed here as they don't fall into the scope of a simple SSG.

*Dislaimer: This is how I would build an SSG, this isn't the only way, but I like this approach as there are a bunch of compile-time optimisations you can per
