The SSG I really like is 11ty. It's so simple, but whenever I think "oh I need this feature," there's always a way to do it.

I think part of the appeal of SSG is that I really don't like JS/HTML/CSS/SCSS. I can do it.. but I really would rather pluck a nice theme from a more talented UX person and just focus on writing stuff.

Plus the ability to push a full site on github.io or any free hosting service is great. If I have to write code I'm much rather focus on writing hooks that push to steemit, medium or such.

I agree, using someone else's theme is really nice. I just like ssgs because there's no way for me to block the user from seeing the page while the server does extra processing. I should look into themes with 11ty and see if I can solve that problem for myself.
