Workshop - Static Site Generators, What, Why and How


As many documentation teams move towards a docs-as-code workflow, most are turning to static site generators like Jekyll, Sphynx, Hugo, or GitBook to turn that 'code' into user-facing documentation websites. In this mini-workshop, you'll get an introduction to the static site generator landscape, and apply what you learn by publishing your own site in class. We'll cover:

  • How static site generators work
  • Comparison of popular generators, with guidelines for choosing one for your next project
  • Hands-on editing and publishing of your own statically generated portfolio website
  • Conference: Write the Docs Australia
  • Year: 2018
