This static site generator is used with "contentful-import" ruby plugin, which allows to fetch data from Contentfull and generate new web-pages based on it. Easy and fun to use.
Serves the main site through CDN. Provides super easy password protection and third-level domain for staging. Uses web hooks from Contentful and Github to know when to trigger new build and update the site. Perfect.
Contentuful acts as a simple CMS for the end-user. A web hook is configured in a way that every time end-client updates any content on the platform - a new build is triggered.
The project lives in its own repository. Nice workflow for developer and no need for client to get here. Every time the repository gets pushed a web hook triggers build system at Netlify.
Used as a dependency management tool.
Gulp is used to configure build pipeline, from jekyll build command to minification, cleaning and optimization of static assets (js,css, img).
