Staticus

I've done it again 🤦‍♂️ It all started when I wanted to add a menu to this site. "Simple!", I thought. The rabbit hole went like this:

  • I can use Headless UI to add a simple menu
  • Headless UI only supports Vue 3
  • My current static site generator (SSG), [Gridsome],(https://gridsome.org/) doesn’t support Vue 3
  • I have a look around. It turns out SSG support for Vue 3 is poor at the moment
  • I look for a new SSG. I like the look of Jigsaw
  • I spend a few days re-building my site with Jigsaw
  • I don’t like some apects of Jigsaw
  • I decide to build my own SSG

4 days later, I have a brand new static site generator I've decided to call Staticus 😂 Sometimes, being able to build things yourself is a curse.
