Do you use any Static Site Generators? If so, which?

@alxd
I mostly use Pelican (about a dozen sites, or so):
blog.getpelican.com/

For a couple of people who aren't comfortable using markup, I have used Lektor:
getlektor.com/

Both are excellent, though Pelican has for more plugins.

@alxd
Jekyll with repo on github and server through Netlify works perfect :)

@alxd
I'm a Jekyll fan, but mostly because I code too -- it's implemented by github.io.

jpspadaro.github.io

That's all done in various degrees of Jekyll, using github's built in "hosting".

@alxd I tried out Jekyll for a while, but got annoyed with the templating engine. I seem to remember Github supported Jekyll natively, but would often time out when building larger sites. I looked at a number of continuous integration solutions to help, but then realised I was spending all my time messing around with the platform rather than writing anything :)
