Static Sites go all Hollywood
Break through the limits of static site generators with the use of a new breed of hosted tools and services.
A talk by Phil Hawksworth at the Front-Trends Conference.
Front-Trends is one of Europe’s most established annual conferences for professional front-end developers to meet, learn and get inspired.
from the talk description:
The popularity of building web sites with static site generators is on the rise. Their reduced complexity, easier compliance, cheaper hosting, and other benefits are getting people’s attention, but they do have limits.
This talk will explore how we can break through some of those limits with the use of a new breed of hosted tools and services. We’ll look at practical examples of how a static site generator can help deliver a modern web development workflow, support a living styleguide, and also pack the kind of dynamic punch that you’d only think possible from bigger application stacks.
