Why are we here?

Static?

That's a baby's toy!

Or is it???

Security
Performance
Freedom

Security

  • Authoring is decoupled from Viewing
  • No "CMS" to hack into!
  • Generated sites are tied to Version Control (aka Git), easy to rollback

Performance

  • Generated sites are just HTML, CSS, and Javascript
  • Slap that puppy on a CDN
  • Scale from 1 to 1,000,000 pageviews without breaking a sweat

Don't be this guy.

Freedom

  • SSG (Static Site Generators) like Jekyll, Hugo, etc. just use regular files (in common formats like Markdown, JSON, etc.)
  • Content not silo'ed inside a complex, confusing database schema
  • Switch authoring tools, hosts, even SSGs at any time, no vendor lock-in

Payload:

{
  "sub": "1234567890",
  "name": "John Doe",
  "admin": true
}

How to use it?

Authorization: Bearer eyJhbGc…

In HTTP POST, PUT, GET, etc.

include this HTTP header:
