Description

What is DocPad?

Empower your website frontends with layouts, meta-data, pre-processors (markdown, jade, coffeescript, etc.), partials, skeletons, file watching, querying, and an amazing plugin system. DocPad will streamline your web development process allowing you to craft full-featured websites quicker than ever before.

What is Gatsby?

Transform plain text into dynamic blogs and websites using the latest web technologies. A React.js static site generator. Supports Markdown, HTML, and React.js pages out of the box. Easy to add support for additional files types. Leverages React's component model and React Router's "nested component hierarchy" to make templating incredibly powerful and intuitive.

What is Jekyll?

Think of Jekyll as a file-based CMS, without all the complexity. Jekyll takes your content, renders Markdown and Liquid templates, and spits out a complete, static website ready to be served by Apache, Nginx or another web server. Jekyll is the engine behind GitHub Pages, which you can use to host sites right from your GitHub repositories.
