My homepage at sidmitra.com, started out as a single page portfolio, but since then has grown into multiple pages. It’s coded in simple static HTML, CSS, JS and with no moving parts. A full blown content management system seems overkill in my case and also ‘cos I'm running it on App Engine. So i was looking for frameworks that would let me exploit the benefits of a full blown templating engine, but spit out a static site. I came across quite a few, which are listed below. I’ll be exploring the Python ones a little bit more to see if they fit my need. Somehow i feel the itch to make my own, though.
