    1. Jekyll is a simple, blog aware, static site generator. It takes a template directory (representing the raw form of a website), runs it through and Liquid converters, and spits out a complete, static website suitable for serving with Apache or your favorite web server.
    2. MkDocs is a fast, simple and downright gorgeous static site generator that's geared towards building project documentation. Documentation source files are written in Markdown, and configured with a single YAML configuration file.

      In a nutshell, Bridgetown is a static site generator. You give it text written in an author-friendly markup language like Markdown, and it uses layouts and templates to build a website and save the compiled HTML, CSS, and Javascript to an output folder.
