A static website "generator" that lets you use servers and frameworks you already know  ↦

The scare quotes around generator are there because Staticgen doesn’t actually generate a static site for you. Instead, it downloads your dynamic site and produces a static version of it. A slightly new twist on an old idea:

If you’re unfamiliar, you can actually use the decades-old wget command to output a static website from a dynamic one, this project is purpose-built for the same idea, letting your team to use whatever HTTP servers and frameworks you’re already familiar with, in any language.

It is not without its caveats (no JavaScript rendering is a big one), but this could be useful in many circumstances you may find yourself in.
