@ilyess I have and it worked great, but it is 'too powerful' or simply overkill for the project I have in mind.
Pretty happy with makesite.py so far.
@hejowhat True. It’s a quite comprehensive site generator. I tend to use it often in case whatever site I’m building turns out to grow bigger than what I had originally in mind for it. A sort of future proofing if you will.
@ilyess My biggest fear of using such static site generator is the long-term maintenance. I don't have the knowledge to fix bugs and stuff if the community stops working on it. I know a little bit of Python and can learn to understand makesite.py in a reasonable time. I doubt that I can do it with Hugo, Jekyll and those big players.
But, those generators are pretty neat and have a lot of features that most 'modern' sites want. But I haven't needed those features yet (lucky me).
