I Don't Want This to be About SSGs
but here we are.
When I first made this site, I built it with about 7 lines of bash and a makefile. It worked fine. Over time I changed that to an 800+ line long Rust program, and tried to avoid talking about it.I can't find this image!! AGH!!
While I really enjoyed the experience of writing an SSG, I'm not sure I really want or need it anymore. That's not to say I'll be writing all my HTML by hand, but I might be tending back toward the slightly-jank-but-it-works side of things. Maybe a bit of C, some bash, ImageMagick, whatever! That way I'll be able to keep tweaking my build process forever, but still be able to actually produce something amidst refactoring chaos.
