Re: [xml-dev] static site generators

For DITA there are a number of static site generators, most (if not all) based on the DITA Open Toolkit’s base XHTML or HTML5 transforms.

For example, the DITA for Publishers HTML5 transform includes facilities for integrating whatever HTML5 theme components you want to set up with the content HTML generated from your DITA source. We also started working out some ways to use DITA maps and topics to define the overall structure of the Web site, but there’s been less demand for that. Mostly it’s been used to produce HTML versions of manuals that are then published to a larger corporate Web site.

The DITA Open Toolkit’s documentation is published in a similar way but using a purpose-built process.

    One thing I've noticed a big uptick in lately are static site generators, where you use a CLI app to create a site template and you use the tool features (typically the language features the CLI was written in) to put the site elements (themes, templates, content, etc.) together, and then use the tool to compile, deploy and host the site itself. You can find a list of them by popularity rankings here: https://www.staticgen.com/ If you look at the site generators, you see them written in Javascript, Go, .NET, PHP, Python; even bash and awk have a couple. But only one (Stog) have anything to do with XML. 
    Does anyone know of any static site generators written around the XML format? I know of one on the .NET side for product documentation (Sandcastle) but it's increasingly becoming an obsolete framework (mainly because of the awful tags Microsoft put into its MAML markup language). Are there any others out there?
