I really like static site generators.
They’re easy to use and perfect when you need to set up a bunch of html pages, without depending on server side languages. As you can see also this blog is made using Jekyll.
I recently reviewed the front-end code of a mid size website.
The goal was trying to get the best performance as possible, according to Page Speed Insights.
I hadn’t the full control of the webserver and I couldn’t install the mod_pagespeed module, so I had to fix all the suggestion from Page Speed by myself.
