  • “Make” as a Static Site Generator
    Most of the Static Site Generators default to generating blog from markdown, which is not feasible for company websites etc. For such projects I like Middleman ( which provides layouts/partials and things like haml templates. - Source: Hacker News / 11 months ago
  • Bloggers who host statically, do you use Jekyll or Pelican to roll your blog posts?
    I've done similar with Middleman, and I'm 99% sure you could set this up with Pelican if you wanted. It sounds like the site generation workflow is the issue rather than the tool. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Show HN: Self-hosted CMS on Cloudflare for podcast/blog/images/videos/docs/URLs
    I use middleman[^1] + bulmaCSS + FontAwesome but host on github using the `` domain and upload podcasts to ""[^2]. The reason I choose this setup is because I want the content to survive as much as possible, hence open source technology and "free & long lived" hosting were requirements.

  • Web app architecture design process guidance
    Thanks u/Draegan88, but what's Middleman got to do with app architecture & design/ERD/schema design? Source: over 1 year ago
  • CMS > MiddlemanApp > static Site - how to start middleman on heroku?
    A simple middleman app consumes the data and builds a static export that runs standalone (just HTML, CSS and some JS files). That gets FTP'd/released to the webserver. Source: over 2 years ago
  • What is your development setup (IDE, gems, library, ci/cd etc) for RoR/non-RoR applications development ?
    For my personal site, which is 10 years old, I use Middleman, and I deploy the site to S3/Cloudfront with s3_website. It works fine for now. If s3_website stops working, I'll move to Netlify probably. Source: over 2 years ago
  • State of the Web: Static Site Generators
    I worked with middleman[0] before and it was much easier to setup for these kind of sites. It might not be as fast as Hugo but who cares if you change a page every other month. [0] - Source: Hacker News / over 2 years ago
  • Lume, which is the simplest static site generator for Deno
    I tried using lume, which is the simplest static site generator for Deno. I have searched a simple static site generator, because GatsbyJS and stuff are not simple, I don't need GraphQL, ReactJS, etc. However, jekyll or Middleman are old, I want to use javascript ecosystem. - Source: / over 2 years ago
  • Question about Shopify/similar platforms
    I was using Middleman at the time, which generates static pages. Source: almost 3 years ago
  • RIP Jekyll (The Genesis of the Jamstack)
    But if for some reason Bridgetown simply isn't to your liking, what's the alternative? You could try out another Ruby static site generator with a long and impressive pedigree, Middleman. There's also Nanoc. - Source: / almost 3 years ago
  • What can be done in cybersecurity with Ruby?
    I made 3 websites using a ruby staticgen called middleman and the slim ruby templates:. Source: over 3 years ago
