    Oof visiting https://ema.srid.ca/ in firefox with noscript does not inspire confidence.

    I’ve looked at a bunch of static site generators and I’m coming around to the point of view that it is a rite of passage to write your own. That way you know the code and can extend it in whichever way you please.

      Oof visiting https://ema.srid.ca/ in firefox with noscript does not inspire confidence.

      This is not Ema’s fault, which doesn’t dictate how you render your HTML or CSS; your site can be as simple as a single index.html containing nothing but <b>Hello</b>.

      It is just that the website’s code lazily (out of convenience) uses the twind JS shim for applying Tailwind styles by using the helper. I’d like to create a new project that creates type-safe Haskell wrapper for Tailwind, as well as acts as a “compiler” that produces the final CSS asset based on the usage in generated HTML, similar to how windicss’s compiler does it.

        My site (https://samhh.com) is currently written in Gatsby, which made sense at the time as I’m most familiar with TypeScript and React. I’ve had a look at rewriting it in Hugo, and it mostly works now locally, but there are almost as many gotchas and questionable design decisions which is disappointing.

        This, linked from the article looks particularly appealing to me, org-mode sites: https://github.com/srid/orgself

          Good work Srid! Nice to see you’re still writing Haskell and nice to see your static site projects progressing :)
