Working with Static Sites - Final Release!

This post is more than 2 years old.

So I've blogged about this a few times already, but now the final, really final release of my book on Static Sites is available for purchase. I co-authored this with Brian Rinaldi and I think it is fair to say this is a great introduction to the topic with multiple real world (ish ;) examples.

For folks curious, here is the table of contents:

  • Chapter 1 - Why Static Sites?
  • Chapter 2 - Building a Basic Static Site
  • Chapter 3 - Building a Blog
  • Chapter 4 - Building a Documentation Site
  • Chapter 5 - Adding Dynamic Elements
  • Chapter 6 - Adding a CMS
  • Chapter 7 - Deployment
  • Chapter 8 - Migrating to a Static Site

congrats! bought! You've got great content here so happy to pay it forward. Also, I looked into Netlify because of you.. and it's great! I'll be moving my blog over to a static site soon, so the book's timing is perfect. I'm thinking Hugo + Netlify.

Thanks Matt - be sure to let me know what you think when done, bad and good. I know both Brian and I want to keep the book updated.

so far, so good! I'm migrating from Tumblr (ha!) to Hugo... spent way too much time trying to find Tumblr export options, only to have the book point me to Hugo's migration tools. Brilliant!
