The content is not going to be all dev-related, so
dev.to API is not an option.
What about WordPress API? Is it a good choice? BTW, I hate WordPress, because the editor isn't Markdown-based.
When I google for
static site generator, everyone seems to forget that the number of contents can get large, like so many pages -- and I want the content to be save in Markdown.
Some other reasons to use an API.
- Searchable blog is more efficient with an API -- https://www.gatsbyjs.org/docs/adding-search/#use-an-api-based-search-engine
- I want to put comment engine in the API as well, if possible
- I think comment is not possible on a SSG without an API
