I've used Nuxt.js for a few projects and it's been a breeze. The docs are well-written too, and it comes with some pretty cool features like nuxt generate. If I am asked to make a static website, I will probably continue making it in Nuxt. You can also use Netlify or Vercel to instantly deploy websites via a git push for free.

I've also heard good things about Metalsmith and Hugo but I haven't personally used these yet.

I also use Jekyll to maintain a community blog, but I find it a little outdated now (it uses the Liquid templating language, and handlebars are a far better solution).

Thanks for the suggestion! I'll add Nuxt.js to the list, and take a look at the others.

nuxt generate. If I am asked to make a static website, I will probably continue making it in Nuxt.

Nuxt generate is currently problematic -- Full static generated mode

But for my current website, I am being lazy, using SSR instead of generated. That's why it is bad for SEO.

Thank you for the link to the Github issue. I have only used Nuxt to create offline web-apps or fully static websites (no API linking whatsoever), so I guess I am in the clear for now. But I will definitely hold off on using it for projects that might integrate with a Headless CMS.
