At Marzee Labs we like to build static sites. In this blog post, we're sharing an ingredient list to build a new static site - including a deployment and testing pipeline - in less than an hour. Best of all, all these tools are for free if you code in the open!
Typically, static site generators compile a list of markdown and template files into HTML. Funnily, the name "static" is somewhat of an oxymoron. In fact, since we adopted static site generators, we are much more free to adopt and leverage HTML and JS libraries, leading to sites that are much less static than the ones we typically build using a full-fledged CMS.
