You can use github pages to serve up static HTML, CSS, and JS

There's a number of static blog site generators like

  • Hexo (based on Node.js)
  • Hugo
  • Jekyll etc

Jekyll is the only one directly supported by github for regenerating content with ruby / gem packages, which is done server-side. Everything else (Hugo, Hexo) you have to install your own dependecies locally and serve up the HTML / CSS /JS into github pages yourself

So it makes for a very lightweight and potentially feature-rich blog page all run through github, and very easy to use without much work once everythings setup

Strongly suggest you use

Said about Jekyll as an alternative


Unlike some listed alternatives, Jekyll is also a static site generator so it lays in the same category. It uses Ruby (while Hugo uses Go) and I'd say it's simpler than Hugo (simpler in functionality and simpler to understand).
