See if Ter works for you.

Ter tries to solve some specific use cases effortlessly, rather than being a full-fledged static site builder.

If any of the following sounds relevant, Ter might be for you.


  • The filesystem is the navigation and organization method;
  • Creating a new page (or section) should be as simple as creating a file (or directory);
  • No bundled JavaScript -- it's just a bunch of hyperlinked documents, after all;
  • Work out of the box, simplicity > customization.

#Use cases

  • A published personal wiki;
  • A collection of Zettelkasten notes;
  • A simple blog;
  • Software documentation (just like the one you're currently browsing).

If you're looking for a more flexible static site generator, try something like 11ty or Astro.
