Description

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 Hexo?

Hexo is a fast, simple and powerful blog framework. It parses your posts with Markdown or other render engine and generates static files with the beautiful theme. All of these just take seconds.

What is Wintersmith?

Wintersmith is a simple yet flexible static site generator. It takes contents (markdown, less, scripts, etc), transforms them using plugins and outputs a static website (html, css, images, etc) that you can host anywhere.
