Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What is a writteli?

Writteli is a static site generator, build with KISS principle in heart.

  1. Another static site generator? Why?

Because I can ;) To be honest, I was not satisfied with any available tools and while I was doing another redesign of my website I decided to create an additional tooling as a side project.

  1. What technologies writteli use?

Template language is pug, it supports ES6 JavaScript syntax as your website scripts and you can choose between traditional CSS, Sass or Sass with indented syntax.

  1. Why pug and not Vue? I've heard you are a Vue.js fan?

Yes I am - but this tool is intended to be a STATIC SITE generator, not Single Page one. Besides that, pug is very simple to learn, and still pretty popular.
