Why Blackhole? Grav is a space term, so I think this plugin should follow suit. Time stops at the event horizon of a black hole, which is exactly what this plugin does to your website. It freezes it in a state. By Increasing gravity to infinity you get a static black hole, or in this case you generate a static html copy of your Grav website.
The simplest way to install this plugin is via the Grav Package Manager (GPM). From the root of your Grav install type:
bin/gpm install blackhole
If you can't use GPM you can manually install this plugin. Download the zip version of this repository and unzip it under
/your/site/grav/user/plugins, then rename the folder to

The generate command can be used from the command line or directly in the Grav Admin Panel. Generate your static site.
