Re: [xml-dev] static site generators


I use XQuery as  generator for my homepage.

An XQuery query behaves exactly like a site template: https://github.com/benibela/site/blob/master/style.xq.html

The content can be stored in XML files and each evaluation of the query returns an HTML page. Just some glue (an eval extension) is needed to load the XML before evaluating the query, because when the XML is loaded in XQuery, the query won't look like a HTML template.

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?
