Built with Astro.build

I started to build simple websites like this one with Astro.build, a static html generator framework.

In a search of a simple static html page generator framework I stumbled up on Astro.build

Immediately I liked the simplicity and ease of use. And mostly to be able to extend it with other JavaScript frameworks like React and Svelte (and more..)

And being able to use Markdown files as content base was exactly what I was looking for. No need for a CMS when GIT can take over that role.

My setup

For now, I’m only using Astro.build with Tailwind integration. I haven’t had the need yet to integrate any other UI Framework ( like React, Svelte etc..) yet, but that might come at some point.

My basic setup:

Install & Create and Astro.build project:

npm create astro@latest

Add the Tailwind CSS integration:

npx astro add tailwind

Start the local dev server..

npm run dev

Load the link localhost:3000 in your browser and start creating :)
