Episode #160: Lektor: Beautiful websites out of flat files

Published Fri, May 4, 2018, recorded Wed, Apr 18, 2018.

What is the fastest, most scalable web platform? Is it Pyramid running on top of MongoDB with a Redis cache? Maybe Flask and Postgres as a service? Some funky Go API framework?

No. It's static files. But today that does not mean you write a bunch of HTML. With static site frameworks like Lektor and Pelican, you can use data to drive the creation of static sites and then host those wherever makes the most sense for you.

On this episode, you'll meet Joseph Nix who works on Lektor, a Python based static site generator.
