Pelican vs Gatsby Cloud: What are the differences?

Developers describe Pelican as "A static site generator, written in Python, that requires no database or server-side logic". Pelican is a static site generator that supports Markdown and reST syntax. Write your weblog entries directly with your editor of choice (vim!) in reStructuredText or Markdown. On the other hand, Gatsby Cloud is detailed as "The best way to build and maintain Gatsby sites". It is the perfect cloud complement for Gatsby and provide a lot of cloud services Gatsby users need like real-time preview and very fast builds.

Pelican and Gatsby Cloud can be primarily classified as "Static Site Generators" tools.

Some of the features offered by Pelican are:

  • Blog articles and pages
  • Comments, via an external service (Disqus). (Please note that while useful, Disqus is an external service, and thus the comment data will be somewhat outside of your control and potentially subject to data loss.)
  • Theming support (themes are created using Jinja2 templates)

On the other hand, Gatsby Cloud provides the following key features:

  • Real-time Preview: View live content updates from your headless CMS
  • Blazing fast Gatsby builds in the cloud (in beta)
  • Performance reports

Pelican is an open source tool with 9.22K GitHub stars and 1.6K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Pelican's open source repository on GitHub.
