Pelican vs Hakyll: What are the differences?

What is Pelican? 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.

What is Hakyll? A haskell library for generating static sites, mostly aimed at small-to-medium sites and personal blogs. It provides you with the tools to create a simple or advanced static website using a Haskell DSL and formats such as markdown or RST.

Pelican and Hakyll 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, Hakyll provides the following key features:

  • Post body (i.e. excluding post metadata) is read
  • Result is passed to an abbreviation substitution filter
  • Result is passed to my custom Pandoc compiler

Pelican and Hakyll are both open source tools. It seems that Pelican with 9.02K GitHub stars and 1.59K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Hakyll with 2.01K GitHub stars and 345 GitHub forks.
