I've used Zola since back when it was called Gutenberg, and am generally very happy with it.
Pros: very fast builds, good/powerful templating system, compile-time syntax highlighting (i.e., doesn't require client-side js), support for all the other standard features
Cons: not a huge ecosystem of pre-built themes if you don't want to build your own.
Zola is firstly and above all a tasty Italian #cheese 😃 https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gorgonzola?wprov=sfla1
@tallblondeguy my blog is in Zola. I love it. It’s extremely fast. I ran some rough benchmarks showing generation for 1000+ posts still only takes a couple seconds. The terra template system I’m generally a fan of, it’s not the best but very adequate for a personal blog or documentation site.
I was lost at the data point of it taking almost 44 minutes to compile on a modern machine.
I would _so_ love a static site generator written in Python which was < 100k and only used the standard Python modules.
