Your blog doesn’t need a JavaScript framework

At the beginning of this year, I decided it was finally time to port my website from a php-based cms[1] to a JavaScript-based Static Site Generator (ssg). This was for a few reasons:After starting out as a ‘full-stack’ developer, I now work solely on the front end: If I need to write custom functionality, I don’t want to write it in php when I could be writing it in JavaScript.I don't need the layers of abstraction or the complexity of a cms — markdown files are where I'm most comfortable writing content and I’d be happy never to touch a Mysql database or wysiwyg editor again.I want to improve my site’s performance: static html files are, 99 times out of 100, going to be faster than pages built on the fly.Lastly, there’s the cost benefit: A lamp stack[2] server costs money every month.
